p.2 Launch at Portsmouth - The vessel of 183 tons built at Portsmouth by Fraser and George, specially for the lumber trade, was launched yesterday (Monday) afternoon. She was christened by Miss Fisher, and named Eliza Fisher. The vessel ran off the ways and into the bay in fine style, without the slightest impediment to arrest her progress. The Eliza Fisher is intended to ply between Napanee and Oswego; she is owned by Mr. James Fisher of Portsmouth and Messrs. Grange and Downey of Napanee. After the launch was over Mr. Fisher entertained a number of his friends at a Champagne lunch in his new house at Portsmouth, where a couple of hours were agreeably spent in pleasantly finishing up the event of the day.

Rescued - as three barges were being poled along the harbor to the Cataraqui bridge, the pole used by one of the hands slipped from his shoulder and he fell overboard, rescued.

Arrivals - 8,9; Departures - 8,9.
