Capt. M. Mullins, Belleville, has purchased the schr. Stirling, now lying at Detroit.

Capt. J. Hinton, of Oakville, was in the city wanting to purchase a schooner. He offered $2,800 for one.

Charles Miller, of the str. Pierrepont, last year, will go as second engineer of the str. Maud with W. Derry this season.

Capt. Joseph Dix has purchased the str. Lorelei from Folger Bros. and will run her the next season on the Gananoque-Clayton route.

Geo. Miller arrived in Kingston today, from St. Catharines. He goes as second engineer on the prop. Algonquin with Mr. Brisbie first.

The M.T. Co.'s new boat will be named Bannockburn. N. Henderson is preparing new plans of the boat now in erection for the convenience of officials here.

E.C. Wintelle and F. Crepeau, Sorel, are in the city looking after the purchase of a small steamer to put on the route between Montreal and Sorel. The hull of the str. Rideau Belle has been looked at and the men left for Collins Bay this morning to look at the str. Princess Louise. There is a possibility of the Princess being purchased. Ira Folger is owner of the boat.

He Is A Dentist - Capt. H. Nicholson, of the steamer North King, studying dentistry at college in Baltimore, for the past three years, has graduated with honors. We extend congratulations, and wish the genial captain success in the business.

A Fine Picture - The marine painting by Nicholas Henderson has been forwarded to the world's fair. The picture was considered by those who are best able to judge as being the best picture of its kind ever executed in this country. The painting is sent by the dominion government. It was exhibited by the academy, Montreal, last week.

Incidents of the Day - Mr. Folger was offered $2,500 for the str. Princess Louise by the men here from Sorel but he would not take it. The boat, he says, is worth more.
