To Lay the Buoys.
The government steamer Scout will leave on Saturday for St. Lawrence river points to place buoys in position on the Canadian side. She will proceed as far east as Quebec, and, returning, will go up the Ottawa river. Her crew will lay between 300 and 400 buoys, and it is expected that over two months' time will be required in which to do the work. Capt. Fraser, of Morrisburg, is in command.
The Scout has been thoroughly overhauled since she went out of commission last fall. She was considerably lengthened at Davis' dry-dock last winter, and two new engines are now being placed in her hull by the Kingston foundry's workmen. The work will be completed on Friday, and it is expected that the vessel will leave port on Saturday.
Capt. Cummings will take command of the steamer Pierrepont for the rest of the season.
The steamer America went on the Cape Vincent route this afternoon, in place of the steamer New Island Wanderer, which left for Clayton to take the route to Alexandria Bay. Capt. Allen will again command the America.
