It will make regular trips between Youngstown and Ogdensburg on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays, stopping at Cape Vincent, Clayton and other river points.

Although it will be some time yet before the vessels will be running the marine men are on the move and some of them are very busy getting the boats in shape for the season.

Quite a number of Kingstonians have left for various places to fit out vessels.

This morning some of the members of the crew of the Glengarry, which has been laid up here all winter, arrived to look after the vessel. Members of the crew of the government boat Speedy have also arrived and carpenters are at work on the steamers Key West and Key Port.

Work will be started at once fitting out the steambarge Bermuda, at anchor in Tunnel Bay, Brockville. Capt. Stitt, of Cardinal, and Chief Engineer Hazlett, of Kingston, are already on the job. The other chief officers are: Capt. Alexander Anderson, of Cornwall, and F. Pringle, of Kingston, second engineer. Application has been made to have the boat changed from American to Canadian registration, in which event her name will be changed to the Senator Derbyshire.
