p.2 Shipbuilding - We understand that Capt. Gaskin has ordered, to be built at the Marine Railway yard in this city, a ship which will register 500 tons, to be trenailed and coppered and clipper modelled. The dimensions of the projected ship are fixed at 145 feet keel, 28 feet beam, 16 feet depth of hold. This is a new enterprise, which we trust will turn out as well as Capt. Gaskin's last effort, while it will undoubtedly add to the reputation as well as to the business of Kingston as a shipbuilding port.
