The smaller Popoffka, called the Novgorod, 101 feet diameter, was docked on Saturday week, and It v found that tho dock had a surplus lifting power 2,000 tons. Tho larger of tho two vessels, the Vii Admiral Popoflf, having a diameter of 121 feet anc weight of 3,COO tons without stores, was raised on Saturday last, the dock having a surplus power of 1,000 tons unemployed.
