Letter From The Bay - (part) ...I cannot refrain from speaking of the merits of the new steamer Bay of Quinte. The proprietors have fitted her up in a very handsome style, emulating, and indeed in some respects surpassing, the vessels on the longer lines. She has a number of large state rooms for family use, with bedsteads instead of the ordinary berths which are capable of accommodating married couples. The table on board is handsomely fitted and bountifully supplied, the greatest zest being the universal attention of the Captain, whose endeavors to please are the more acceptable from the fact that they proceed without an effort. No expense has been spared upon damask, gilding, cut velvet, looking glasses, and works of art, to make the upper saloon and ladies' cabin elegant and attractive, and food for the mind has not been forgotten in the supply of good and useful articles."
Belleville, May 11th, 1853.
Launch - The fore and aft schooner John Hiseman built for W. Meyers of the Trent, was launched yesterday from the Marine Railway Shipyard, at 4 p.m. The new Schooner is of a handsome model, and of large capacity. We understand she will be employed chiefly in the lumber trade. She measures 110 1/2 feet keel, 120 feet over all, 25 feet 6 inch beam, 10 feet 3 inch hold and 310 tons. The day was far from pleasant for a turnout, but a goodly number of spectators were present, and a number of gentlemen on board were invited to a champagne lunch in the cabin.
