Full Text

Launch. - The substantial and beautiful schooner built by James A. Baker, Seq., and owned by Messrs. Avery & Baker, of this city, will be launched this afternoon at 3 P.M. This is one of the largest and most perfect vessels ever built in Oswego; her timbers and all the materials having been selected with the greatest care, her bolts and fastenings having received special attention under the superintendence of Mr. Baker's Foreman Mr. James Navagh, whose skill as a builder, is well known to be unsurpassed.

She is fitted with all the modern improvements, having on board Messrs. Talcott & Underhill's Patent Capstan and Windlass of the largest size - also a new patent Iron Windlass, for hoisting anchors, lately invented by G. Talcott Esq., which not only combines great power, with economy of room, but overcomes all the difficulties experienced with the present windlass, and is attracting much attention as being the best article for the purpose, ever supplied to any vessel.
