p.3 First Vessel From Hamilton To Australia Direct - The brigantine Union, which was the first vessel direct from this city to Liverpool, three years ago, having been purchased by Messrs. Edgar and Melville, sailed yesterday with a mixed cargo for Austalia direct. The cargo consists of manufactured lumber of various descriptions, such as carriage and waggon wheels, hubs, cabinet stuff, sashes, etc., also coal oil. Captain Zealand Jr. takes the Union down the lake and river to Montreal, where Capt. ( es) will assume command. The Union is a fine vessel, and has made several voyages abroad, the last being to Cuba, during which she encountered the severe gale in which so many vessels of the Burnside expedition were lost. She is an excellent sea-going ship, and is expected to make a rapid passage to Melbourne. [Hamilton Spectator]
