The steamers Alexandria and Argyle are being fitted out at Picton.

Mr. Gildersleeve's new wharf at Picton will be completed next month.

A heavy gale raged all night and throughout today. Most of the sailing vessels had to remain in port.

The steamer Pierrepont made her first trip of the season to Gananoque this afternoon. She first made a trip to Cape Vincent with cattle.

The pay to sailors on United States vessels is higher than that received on Canadian vessels, and the result is many Canadians are shipping on the former vessels.

p.5 Repairing the Steamer - Chaffey's Locks, April 8th - T.F. Long has been engaged as purser on the steamer Rideau King. The steamer is undergoing repairs at Jones' Falls. She will be ready for navigation the 1st of May.
