The steamer Arabian, Montreal to Port Dalhousie, light, called at Swift's wharf this morning.
The M.T. company will have fifty vessels laid up here this winter. Two of their barges are being rebuilt, and much money will be spent in repairing the fleet.
During the present winter the Montreal transportation company will build a new steel barge, on lines similar to those on which the two barges Kingston and Brighton were constructed. It is thought that a Toronto firm will receive the contract.
The steamer Pierrepont goes to Cape Vincent this afternoon to load coal. The gunboat, engineer Kelly says, can go to Liverpool. Capt. Geoghegan is of the same opinion, if the gunboat is hoisted on the davitt of an ocean steamship. Capt. Allen claims that the Pierrepont can sail right over Wolfe Island.
