p.3 On Thursday afternoon a large concourse of people gathered in the vicinity of Robertson's shipbuilding yard, Hamilton, to witness the launch of the new propeller owned by Captain Fairgrieve of that city. She was named "The Canada", by Miss Fairgrieve, daughter of the owner. Her capacity is the largest that can be built for the canals, and she is said to be one of the finest models yet launched on Lake Ontario. Her engines are on the compound principle, modelled by Mr. Hugh Fairgrieve. She is intended for the general lake trade.
