Vessels are generally being stripped and laid up for the winter. Several belonging to Kingston are still making trips across the lake, but this will not last long.

Messrs. Calvin & Breck will during the winter build a barge at Garden Island, having a carrying capacity of about 30,000 bushels. It will be 167 feet long with 30 feet beam.

Hon. A.C. Mattoon, of Oswego, will have built during the winter at that port a propeller, which will be 110 feet keel, 120 feet over all, and 20 feet beam. She will be run as a daily boat between Oswego and Alexandria Bay from June to September 10th, and carry freight during the remainder of the season.
