Spring Walks of the British Whig

By a Fresh Hand

Walk #3

At Kinghorn's Wharf, Captain Gaskin's fine barque the British Lion, is now loaded with 300 tons of ice for the Chicago market, to be shipped there by Messrs. Anderson & Ford.

This firm is also loading the barque Waterwitch, at Messrs. Berry & Co's wharf, with ice for same port. The loading will, in all likelihood, be completed tonight.

Opposite Morton's Brewery lies the schooner Queen of the Lakes, also loading with ice for Chicago.

At Kinghorn's Wharf, the steamers Pierrepont and Gazelle have undergone general repairs, as well as Mr. O.S. Gildersleeve's steamer Bay of Quinte - the repairs to which are not yet completed.

At Anderson & Ford's Wharf, the steamer Avon has had her machinery extensively repaired during the winter, and she is expected to take a prominent position amongst her compeers during the approaching season.

The steamer Clyde has also received general repairs here. Messrs. Anderson & Ford are now busily engaged in repairing, and partially rebuilding their wharf, a portion of which is being loaded with stone to render it firmer and more durable. This beneficial change will offer increased facilities for vessels during the summer season.

p.3 Yacht For Sale - Garibaldi, ten tons measurement, sloop rigged, apply to W.G. Draper.
