Full Text



The schr. White Oak is receiving new bulwarks.

The schr. Queen of the Lakes loads rye today for Buffalo.

The schr. Julia fitted out today to leave for Oswego for a cargo of coal consigned to Folger Bros.

The dredge Ontario is being fitted up for the season's work, and will probably commence operations earlier than usual.

The schooners at present in Belleville harbor are the Kate, Bullock, Delaware, Freeman, British Queen, Restless and Rainbow.

The schr. S.H. Dunn has been much improved during the winter months. Painters are busy painting her black and lead colors. She will look as good as new when ready for service.

The yacht Norah has had 5,300 lbs. of ballast added to her weight, and it is expected she will show some good speed this season. The Atalanta, Dauntless and Iolanthe have also undergone slight repairs.
