People who travel on the river between Kingston and Clayton, perhaps, are not aware that there is a drop of nearly two feet in the river between Cedar Island and the little Yankee town over the river. The drop is at the rate of an inch a mile, and Clayton is twenty-two miles from Kingston. If one stands on top of a steamer going down the river he can see that the water at Kingston harbor is higher than it is miles down. When coming up, one notices that a steamer miles ahead appears higher than it would on the level.

p.8 Incidents - The steamer Arabian passed down on Saturday morning.

The steamer Dunellum (sic) arrived at the long pier, Portsmouth, on Saturday morning, from Howe island, where she loaded hay. The vessel took on more hay at Portsmouth, for her trip to the upper lakes.

The Kingston Shipbuilding company have, for the last week, had a large staff of skilled workmen rushing the repairs to the damaged steamer Rosemount. The vessel will be released this evening, after thorough repairs, which were completed within record time.

All the machinery is in working order now, excepting one or two more machines which they expect to instal during the next few weeks.
