Capt. Bates will have a vessel in a few days and draw coal for the remainder of the season. The loss of the schooner Fabiola was a greater blow to him than some people suppose. He says he lost every dollar he had in the vessel and had not friends come to his assistance in obtaining another vessel he would be in pretty hard shape.

A Fine Piece of Work - There is on exhibition in the window of Wade's drug store a miniature sailing vessel, full rigged and out-fitted. It is the work of Alfred Bernier, Garden Island, and shows great skill and ability in workmanship. The stand on which it rests is composed of 1,000 pieces of wood, delicately interlaced. On the vessel, not a rope, not a jib, or any other part of a ship's rigging is missing. It is well worthy of inspection. The whole model was built in less than a month.
