p.2 Launch - A splendid steam propeller was launched from the shipyard of Messrs. D. & J. McCarthy & Co., at Sorel. She was built for the firm of Messrs. Gibb, Ross & Co., of Quebec, and is intended to trade to the West. She is said to be capable of carrying 3,900 barrels of flour. She looks beautiful in the water, her draught being only 2 feet 3 inches of water, even keel; and her material, fastenings, and workmanship, are pronounced by all competent judges to be of a very superior description. The boat will doubtless give satisfaction to the owners, and do credit to the well-known and enterprising firm by which she was built. [Gazette Nov. 24th]
