W. Robinson is building four steam yachts for Montreal parties.

The schr. Picton is in Davis' dry-dock receiving some new planks and being thoroughly caulked.

Two of the M.T. Co.'s tugs, the Glide and Walker, are in the government dry dock receiving repairs to their hulls.

The Minnedosa is being fitted up under the direction of Capt. Irwin and will be ready for work by the time the canals open.

The first arrival of the Richardson fleet came in yesterday afternoon. The sloop Madcap arrived from Bay of Quinte ports with buckwheat.

The work of fitting out the tug Fearless is being pushed as rapidly as possible. All the men that can be conveniently employed are at work on her.

James Quigley, engineer, and James Smith, mate, of the str. Nile, left for Deseronto, yesterday, to fit out the steamer for the season. Capt. W.J. Daly will go up in a few days.

Men are overhauling the str. Lake Michigan. The Sir Leonard Tilly (Tilley ?) will ply between Kingston and Lake Superior. The Acadia, Persia and Ocean will make their weekly return trips to Montreal, starting May 1st.

The sails on the schr. Annie Falconer were bent yesterday, and as soon as the work of fitting her out is completed she will clear for Big Sodus to load coal for this port. Capt. Montgomery, late of the schr. Delaware, is in command. The last named schooner has outlived her usefulness and has been consigned to the graveyard.
