p.2 Launch of a Vessel at Oshawa, For Ocean Traffic - By the Oshawa Vindicator we learn that on Saturday, the 8th instant, at Port Oshawa, that Messrs. Farewell launched their new vessel, the Allies, as splendid a looking sailing craft as ever skimmed the waters of Lake Ontario. She is intended for both the Lake and Ocean trade, and will probably, this fall, or early in the spring, take a trip to the West Indies or to Liverpool, England. She is a three-masted brig, and her dimensions are as follows: 130 feet keel, 26 1/2 feet beam, and 11 1/2 feet deep in the hold. She will carry a burthen of 550 tons. Captain Abraham Farewell is to command her.
