p.2 New Steamer - The new steamer Europa, Capt. Harrison, arrived at this port on Tuesday morning from Hamilton and Toronto, and proceeded down the river to Ogdensburgh. The Europa is a large and very handsome boat, and certainly does credit to Hamilton, where she was built, and to the enterprize of her owners, chiefly residents of the "ambitious little city." She is under the command of Capt. Harrison, long well and favorably known in this city. The dimensions of the Europa are 236 feet in length, 30' 8" beam, and 13 feet depth of hold. Her cabins are not yet complete, but will be fitted out to accommodate about 200 cabin passengers. The present route of the new steamer is from Hamilton to Ogdensburgh.

Launch - The launch today will take place at half-past one o'clock, P.M. from Mr. Ault's shipyard, Portsmouth. The Bowmanville is the largest steamer ever built here, having the full length for the St. Lawrence canal locks with more than the usual beam, while she is intended for the lake and river trade. Capt. Perry has procured Murdoch's band for the occasion.
