p.2 Vessel Models - Mr. Power has completed the models we mentioned the other day, and they are certainly about the handsomest we ever saw. The following are the dimensions of the three vessels: A centre-board lake schooner, length, 134 feet at the load line, 139 feet over all; beam 29 feet; hold, 12 feet. An ocean sailing schooner yacht - length, 128 feet at the load line, 13 feet (sic) over all; 26 feet beam; 10 1/2 feet hold. An ocean ship, length, 180 feet at the load line, 199 feet over all; 38 1/2 feet beam; hold 22 feet 10 inches; tonnage, 1,220 tons; with figure head, and handsome carvings on the bulwarks. These models are Mr. Power's contribution to the Centennial, and will be on exhibition at the Mechanic's Institute rooms tomorrow, and will remain there for a day or two prior to being sent to Toronto for shipment to Philadelphia. Mr. Power has already won fame as a shipbuilder having taken the first prize and silver medal at the Paris Exhibition of 1854 for vessel models, beating 318 competitors. We hope he will have the same success as Philadelphia.
