My interpretation of this chart:   1) Gives the date a barge arrived,  2) The name of the barge and in some cases the name of the Steamer that brought the barge in,  3) A repeat of the barge name / number,  4) In a few cases the date the barge was hauled out of the river, put back into the river and / or then taken away from the Ways, again a few have the name of the Steamer that took them away,  5) A repeat of the barges name / number.   

I would be interested to hear any other interpretation.
