News In Small Lots - The frame of the steam yacht Ingomar is up and the erection of the engine is well on. The boat has to be delivered on June 1st.

The steam barges D.D. Calvin and str. American (Armenia ?) with consorts will leave today for Toronto for timber for Garden Island. The boats were flying the union jack and stars and stripes today.

Steam was raised in the boiler of T. McAuley's yacht on Thursday with the result that she registered 640 revolutions by the indicator. Mr. Davis says she worked like a sewing machine.

R. Davis has ten men at work on the schr. Dudley, which went ashore last fall, resulting in a bad hole being knocked in her bottom. She will be dry-docked as soon as the barge Quebec is able to leave the dock.


The schr. Hanlan will have her new foremast stepped today.

The str. Hiram Calvin transhipped a load of withes from Kingston to Garden Island today.

The str. Corsican will make a trial trip up the Bay of Quinte some day next week. Greater speed is anticipated.

The str. Belmont, laying at Davis' ship yard, will be fitted out and will run on the route between Gananoque and Kingston in place of the Princess Louise.
