-New Barge - One of the new steam barges built in Kingston harbor this season, the Carlisle, has left for Opinicon Lake on her first trip, to load lumber for Cape Vincent. She is a very fine boat of her class, is 108 feet in length, 7 feet in depth of hold, and 22 feet in beam; capacity 8000 bushels grain. As soon as the grain season opens she will ply between the Bay of Quinte and Oswego. Her boiler and engine, which are found to work admirably, were constructed by the Canadian Engine & Machinery Co.
