p.2 The Launch - The new schooner belonging to Mr. J. Carruthers was successfully launched this afternoon. She commenced to move at 15 minutes past 3 o'clock, when the christening ceremony was prettily performed by Miss Davidson, who bestowed the name of Annandale upon the vessel, and in a few moments she was riding gracefully upon the water. She was committed to the lake with her masts and rigging entire, with anchors and cables on board; and all that now remains to be done towards her entire completion for service is bending her sails and rattling down a portion of her rigging. She sits the water "like a duck," and is a credit to her builders and to her rigger, Mr. Falconer. Her dimensions are 110 feet keel, 25 feet beam, 9 ft. 3" hold, 260 tons measurement, and her capacity is about 12,400 bushels.

p.3 Arrivals - 11.

Canadian Navigation Company - Tenders For Fuel Wood - for 4,000 cords hardwood, and 4,000 cords softwood, four feet in length.
