The Launch of the New Dominion - The schooner New Dominion was successfully launched last Saturday afternoon at three o'clock at Roblin's Mills, Sophiasburgh, Prince Edward County. It is said that fully two thousand persons were present. The vessel is 112 feet keel, 26 feet beam, and ten feet six inches depth of hold, and has a capacity of 16,000 bushels. She is intended for the Lake trade, for which she will be ready in about two weeks. Her owners are Messrs. Bowman and C. Wilson, of Picton. Those who have seen the New Dominion say that she is of a very handsome model, and sits well in the water. The same gentlemen have laid down and are building another, but much smaller vessel, of a capacity of about 6,000 bushels, but which cannot be ready to launch until next spring.
