The Chicora Is Out Of Dry Dock.

The steamer Chicora, undergoing extensive repairs in the government dry dock, has been removed from there to one of the opposite slips. Several gangs of men are busy at work on her and it is expected that she will be finished by Saturday, May 14th, as the management want her to leave for Toronto on that date. The repairs for her boiler and machinery have not yet been finished. The boat is being repainted her original colors throughout and will leave Kingston looking like a new boat.

The tug St. Paul, dredge Sir Richard and a mud scow are in dry dock undergoing

examination and repair.
