p.2 Launch - On Thursday a new brigantine was launched from the Marine Railway Ship-yard. The new vessel measures about 230 tons and will carry about 14,000 bushels through the canal. Her sails, rigging etc. were furnished and fitted by Mr. Falconer, sailmaker of this city. There is another and larger vessel on the stocks in the same yard, partially planked - a clipper-modelled lake bark - and at Portsmouth Mr. Ault has in frame a first-class fore and aft clipper schooner, of about 300 tons. The new steamer Wellington, built for Calvin & Breck, came over from Garden Island on Thursday on a trial trip. She is a finely-built and fast boat, and will be employed in the lake and river passenger and freight business.

p.3 ad for D. & M. O'Gorman, boat builders, Barriefield - skiffs made to order.
