p.2 Launch - On Saturday afternoon, the new steamer built by Messrs. Calvin & Breck was launched from their ship-yard, Garden Island. The day was fine and the launch was a beautiful one. A number of ladies and gentlemen from the city went over to the Island in the steamer America, and were present on the occasion.

The new steamer is of the largest class of lake and river vessels. She will carry about 4000 barrels freight, and the upper saloon will accommodate from 20 to 30 passengers. Built of the best material, of excellent workmanship and well modelled, the new steamer will do credit to our lake service.

Imports - 9,10,12th.
