p.3 Being Made Staunch - The steamers of the White Squadron are being placed in a staunch condition for next summer. The St. Lawrence recently received a thorough overhauling; the Islander will be in Davis' dry dock the greater part of the winter and will be almost entirely rebuilt, and the steamer New York will be made practically a new boat, so far as the hull is concerned. The other steamers will also receive attention.
