Full Text

A new 3 masted schooner, named the E.S. ADAMS, was launched at Port Robinson, Canada, on Friday last. The Buffalo Commercial says that she is named after a respectable citizen, the present Mayor of St. Catharines. She was built by Messrs. Abbey, at Port Robinson, for Messrs. Harris & Kneeland, of St. Cathrines. She measures 405 tons, is rigged as a 3 masted schooner, and is one of the finest modeled, best built vessel ever put afloat upon our western waters. She is a credit to the town where she was built and to her builders.
