Seymour a little below the the... wharf, the Silver Spray is next to her, then the Frances Smith considerably bruised and battered by her Lake Superior experience. Next to her is the City of Owen Sound also bearings tokens of the very hard time she had on the last trip, while farther down on the opposite bank lies the Waubuno in her old station looking none the worse for her summer trips. These are the steamers. Of the sailing vessels laid up for winter, the Prince Edward lies next to the City of Owen Sound. Above the Prince Edward nearer the bridge is the Bella McPhee. On the western bank lies the Mountaineer and outside of her in the stream the Phebe Catherine. Above Sutherland storehouse lies the Maple Leaf, and farthest down of all the Restless, while the Dredge lies snug in the basin where the vessels are built, and launched. Ice is formed in the river but not to any great thickness as yet. The alternate open and frosty weather prevents it from forming solidly. Work is progressing at the Dry Dock as fast as possible under the circumstances and every thing is going on as favourably as can be expected.
