-The Chaffey - The Enterprise thus notices the new craft built here for the Brockville ferry: "Last Saturday night Messrs. Gray Jento's new ferry steamer, Chaffey, arrived from Kingston. The Chaffey is a fine staunch craft of 60' keel and 14' beam, propelled by an engine of about 22 horse power. She was built by Messrs. Geo. Chaffey & Brother of Portsmouth, near Kingston, and is of a very neat model. Her owners expect that she will run 12 miles an hour. The Chaffey is capable of accommodating at least 150 passengers, and is admirably adapted for carrying small excursions and pleasure parties."

-The St. Helens Engines - Mr. J.S. McCuaig wants to use them in new steamer on Bay of Quinte; Mr. Taylor Gov't Inspector of Steamboats passed them 1 week before she was wrecked, but Mr. Gilbert of Montreal has bad opinion of them.
