p.2 Launch - Yesterday at 4 o'clock, the brig Lilla, built at Portsmouth, for Messrs. Hunter & Pearson, was launched in the presence of a large number of spectators. The Lilla is strongly built of the best material, is beautiful in model, and will measure, we believe, about 350 tons. This fine vessel is destined for the lake Timber Trade - a trade in which Mr. Buller cooly asserts in the House of Commons, we of Upper Canada have no interest!

We should not omit to state that Messrs. Collins & Power were the builders of the Lilla, nor that her rigging has been prepared by Mr. Proby, the latter of whom has also, by the way, just sent up to Port Credit the rigging for another new vessel of the same dimensions as the Lilla.

p.3 Steamboat Accident - We are sorry to hear that the Canada and the Gildersleeve steamers came into contact on Monday night last, on Lake St. Francis, by which the former has been considerably injured, and was in consequence obliged to run into Lancaster. [Chronicle]

The Breeze - It is with much pleasure we record our meed of praise to the Messrs. Browns of Port Hamilton, for their enterprise in Commercial matters. They have already materially augmented the facilities of navigation, with substantial and good sailing vessels belonging to "our own Port," and it was to our gratification, the other day, we visited another new and beautiful Schooner, the Breeze just finished for the same enterprising owners, who have spared no expense in rigging and fitting her up. The Breeze is, we think without exception, the prettiest built and the neatest finished vessel on the Lakes. She is capable of carrying 3500 barrels of Flour, and her measurement 350 tons. Length of keel 110 feet, breadth of beam 26 feet over all. She was built by Shickluna of St. Catharines - and does infinite credit to him as a ship-builder. Her worthy owners may justly be proud of her, and we wish them every success. [Hamilton Gazette]
