p.2 The new schooner North Star, of Mill Point, was most successfully launched on Saturday afternoon from the shipyard of Messrs. H.B. Rathbun & Son, in presence of a large concourse of spectators. The North Star was built by Wm. Jamieson, of the best white oak timber, is 113 feet keel, 26 feet beam, and will carry 220,000 feet of lumber or 13,000 bushels grain. It is the third new vessel he has successfully built and launched from the above shipyard this season, and has two more started. After the launch, and in presence of the large concourse of people, the builder, Mr. Jamieson, who has been foreman of the yard for a number of years, was presented by his employers and workmen of the yard with a beautiful $50 silver watch, accompanied with a very appropriate address, read by Wm. Evans, to which he made a very suitable reply.
