The Davis Drydock company of Kingston has been awarded, by the marine department, the contract to rebuild the hull, up to the joiner work, of the buoy steamer Scout. The contract price is $7,600. The work is to be completed by the middle of September. The joiner work will be done by the government workmen at Prescott. The old machinery of the Scout will be utilized. It simply requires cleaning and overhauling, as it is in fair condition.

Marine Notes.

Craig's wharf: steamers Alexandria up; Melbourne down.

Swift's wharf: steamers Toronto, down and up; Belleville up; Rideau King from Ottawa.

M.T. company wharf: steamers Turret Crown and Westmount due on Monday; tug Emerson from Charlotte with three coal laden barges.

Today the Davis' Drydock company shipped a small steamyacht to Quebec and a small passenger steamer to Temigami. On Tuesday, a steamyacht leaves their yards for Muskoka.

Messrs. Molther and Chestnut, United States steamboat inspectors, are here to inspect the steamers Caspian and Rideau Queen. As these are Canadian vessels, the inspectors simply check over the items on their certificates from the local inspectors and see that everything is according to what is credited.
