Put New Plates On The Boat

John Donnelly and staff returned this morning from the east. The steamer Belleville is engaged, during the winter, keeping the ice broken in the channel seven or eight miles below Prescott. This prevents the ice from jamming up there, and enables the ferry to run between Prescott and Cornwall. The ice broken by the ferry boat can then drift down the river. In performing her work a week ago today, the Belleville broke a couple of steel plates on her bottom. The Donnelly wrecking and salvage company sent its men down to place new plates in position. This was successfully accomplished, and the men returned home today.
