A first class schooner, called the Admiral was launched at Port Hope on the 11th inst. The Admiral is of about 140 tons measurement.

Shipbuilding has been carried on during the past winter throughout the Province to an unprecedented extent. At almost every part some addition has been or is about to be made to the strength of our inland marine.

On a recent trip up the bay we noticed four vessels on the stocks - three schooners and one steamer. Of these one schooner was building at Amherst Island, a steamboat and schooner at Bath, and a schooner at Picton.
