p.2 Launch - Agreeably to notice, the beautiful Steamer St. George was launched from the ship yard at Mississagua Point on Monday last. An unusual number of persons assembled to witness the interesting sight, and at about 5 o'clock they were gratified by seeing the St. George glide majestically into the water without sustaining the slightest injury. The band of the 15th Reg't were stationed on her deck, and enlivened the scene by playing a variety of the most approved and fashionable airs of the day. We have already stated that the burden of this new steamer is 360 tons. Her model is exquisite, she will be propelled by an Engine of great power, and we are informed that no expense will be spared in fitting up the cabins for the accommodation of passengers.
