p.2 The Launch - At about 12 o'clock at noon today, Captain Weeks launched the hull of his new Steamboat, and as she dipped the water Mr. George Weeks, Jr., christened her the Queen of the West, and at the same time a flag bearing the name was ran up from the bows. The Launch was a beautiful sight, everything went off to admiration. We learn that the boat has been sold to a Canada Company and that she is to be finished and receive her machinery at Hamilton, C.W. The Queen of the West is of a beautiful model, and sits on the water "like a duck," and with suitable engines may be the fastest boat on Ontario. [Oswego Times]
