Marine Paragraphs.

Chief engineer W.A. Black, of the str. Hamilton, arrived at the Anglo-American, yesterday, and will superintend the refitting of his vessel preparatory to commencing the season's work.

The managers of the forwarding companies expect there will be a lot of grain to carry in the spring, and with this expectation in view are making all the necessary arrangements for the expeditious handling of the grain.

All the machinery, boilers, iron work and other material of any value have been removed from the stranded steamer H.A. Calvin, ashore west of Knapp's lighthouse. The hull and what remains of the steamer above decks will, most likely, be cut up by the farmers in the vicinity for firewood.

The new steamer Rosemount for the M.T. Co. will be sent out here in charge of an English crew. The engineer who will bring out the new boat will remain with it for the greater part of the summer to guarantee the satisfactory working of the machinery. The Rosemount will be ready to carry grain about the middle of June.
