Yesterday a fine new steamer of about two hundred tons intended for trade on the Canals, was launched by M. Cantin from his ship-yard, at the Red Store, lower Lachine road. This vessel is fitted with wheels, which, together with the entire engine, lie close to the stern. She was, contrary to the usual practice, launched with her broadside to the water. She was launched with her engines on board all ready for her first trip, except paintwork. [Herald]
