p.6 Argyle Leaves Tonight - The steamer Argyle will leave the government dry dock for Toronto at ten o'clock tonight, and resume her trips from the Queen City at two o'clock, Saturday afternoon. It is just a week this evening since the Argyle arrived for repairs to her bottom, and the work was rapidly proceeded with. To look at the vessel today, one would wonder that so much could be done in such a short time. The damaged planks in her bottom have all been restored, every one that showed the slightest ill-usage being taken out and replaced. The hull has all been scraped and recaulked, and is pronounced by the inspectors to be in first class condition. Then the Argyle has been painted from stem to stern, smokestack and all, and looks like a new boat.

The Steamyacht Albina - The fine and commodious private steamyacht Albina, owned by Mr. Wagner, proprietor of the Frontenac Cereal Works here, and who now resides at Brockville, has been in port for the past few days with Mr. and Mrs. Wagner aboard. Tomorrow it goes down to Brockville. The Albina has a Kingston crew, with Captain Charles Cummings, formerly of the steamer Pierrepont, in command, and Arthur Page, as engineer, both two competent and popular steamboat men.
