The steamer Keystorm, which was damaged recently by running ashore, is at the Locomotive works dock and will have temporary repairs made until she can get in the Kingston dry dock. The steamer Sinbad is at the present time in the dock, and it will be a few days yet before she will come out. The pumps are being kept going on the Keystorm all the time.

The Kingston dry dock will be a busy place for the next two weeks. The steamer Sinbad is in now and as soon as she comes out the Keystorm will go in. The dock has been engaged for the steamer Caspian as soon as she is released from her position on a shoal near Belleville.
