p.2 Launch - The new steam propeller Avon, of about 400 tons burthen, built for Messrs. Hooker, Pridham & Co., was launched from the Marine Railway shipyard soon after 3 o'clock on Saturday afternoon. The Avon presented a fine appearance in the water, and was the admiration of every one present. She is certainly one of the best modelled vessels ever turned out of a Kingston shipyard, and we trust may prove a successful one. Theengine and boilers are those of the Tinto which was burned last summer.
