Marine Notes

Sailors from this district are hastening away to join their vessels at distant ports.

The government dredges were placed in the dry dock today. Repairs will occupy three weeks.

The steamer Islander will begin her season's run on the Clayton-Alexandria Bay route next week.

Extensive repairs will be made to the hull of the steamer New York, which will likely be placed on the marine railway at Portsmouth.

Navigation on Lake Ontario has opened and reports of ships headed for the port of Charlotte have been received. The steam-barge Porter and three-masted schooner Oliver Mowat are expected at Charlotte.

On Thursday Buffalo harbor was practically free of ice. At Port Colborne on the same day there was a solid field as far as the eye could see with the aid of a glass and an attempt to get out of that port to begin work on the wall construction had to be abandoned. The ice is tough, blue, thick and solid.

Boilermakers Happy Assembly - boiler makers and iron ship builders hold third annual assembly in City Hall.
