The boiler for Calvin's new tug arrived from Toronto today.

The new shaft for the str. Maud was completed today, and the work of putting it in position is now going on.

Capt. W.W. Bamford, Wolfe Island, left today for Chicago to superintend the fitting out of his boat, the str. Iron Cliff.

As the Welland canal does not open till April 19th the schr. Queen of the Lakes cannot make her trip to Toledo till after that date. She may carry some coal from Oswego.

The str. Hero will start on the bay route about April 7th. So far the bay is not thoroughly clear of ice. The steamer would have a great deal of difficulty in getting up to Belleville at present.

The steamer Islander will begin to ply the Clayton-Alexandria Bay route next Monday. The Islander will be officered: Captain, A. Charlebois; mate, Gordon Wilson; engineer, John D. Carter; fireman, Barney Farwell; purser, Ernest Williams.

Mr. Keefe returned from Oswego yesterday. He estimates that there are seventy-five sailing vessels and steamers harbored there waiting to get up the lakes. A great many of the boats have either been loaded or unloaded since the ice began to break up and an immense quantity of coal will be carried up the lakes as soon as navigation opens.
