p.2 Steam Barge Norman - This fine new steam barge, owned by Messrs. George Creighton and Gooderal, is now receiving the finishing touches at the Shipyard of W. Power & Co. She was built on Opinicon Lake by Mr. Wm. Ainsley in first class style, and finished by W. Power & Co. of this city. Her carrying capacity is 8000 bushels, her engines 35 horse power, carrying sail besides. Her engines, which were manufactured by D. McEwen & Co., of this city, were tested on Saturday, and worked most satisfactorily. She is altogether a fine, A-1 craft, and a credit to her builders and furnishers. She is built for the Bay of Quinte, River and Oswego trade, of which no doubt she will do a large share. After the 25th inst. she will be open for charters, and we trust that Messrs. Creighton and Gooderal will have no lack of them to reward their enterprise.
