Marine Notes.

The steambarge John Milne slid off the Kingston foundry ways a few days ago, the ice causing the movement. She splashed into the water, but sustained no damage.

The steamer Riverside, running between Ogdensburg and Alexandria Bay and owned by Capt. Dana, of the later place, will be lengthened twenty feet and will receive new machinery

The steamer Aletha will be hauled out on the Kingston foundry marine railway, and will undergo extensive repairs so as to make her more staunch than ever for the Bay of Quinte route. A new saloon and lady's cabin will be built. The Aletha will likely be chartered by Mr. Gilderlseeve for a number of years.
