p.1 The Launch - On Wednesday afternoon, we had the pleasure of witnessing the birth of another addition to the wealth of Kingston, in the shape of the launch of a beautiful steamboat built at the Railway yard by Mr. Shea, under the superintendence of Henry Gildersleeve, Esq. and intended for the bay and river business. The new boat glided into her destined element with the utmost ease and gracefulness, and was christened by Miss Counter, whose father is a principal shareholder, by the name of The Henry Gildersleeve. The name is not the best that could have been selected, on account of its length, and also by reason of the jealousy it may engender; but few men have better deserved to be thus complimented by his brother shareholders, whose interest he has ever prosperously advanced, than the recipient on the present occasion.
