p.2 Launch at Oakville - Yesterday afternoon at three o'clock, a fine new schooner belonging to Messrs. Jackman and Murray, of this city, was launched at Oakville. The launch passed off very successfully, the vessel sliding safely off her ways, without the slightest accident occurring. She was christened by the name of Seagull by Miss Zelia Murray, of Oakville. She was built by Mr. John Simpson, ranks in class A-1 with a star, and is of 350 tons burden. Dimensions are:- Her length of keel 110 feet; over all 115 feet; width of beam 26 feet; depth of hold 10 feet. The sails and rigging were manufactured by Mr. Adams, of this city, and are of a very superior character. As soon as she is finished it is intended to run her between the lake ports and Halifax, Nova Scotia. [Globe] (The rigging of this new schooner is of the light and strong description of wire rigging, introduced in this quarter by Captain Gaskin. The Seagull's rigging was put up in Kingston, and forwarded to Toronto.)
