Full Text

The launch of the new vessel at Port Huron took place on Wednesday afternoon at 3:00, in the presence of a large number of spectators. She glided beautifully into the elements, and was christened the LUCY J. CLARK. Competent judges pronounce her one of the finest model vessels afloat, and of exquisite finish. As regards her outfit,by which we mean her sails and rigging, has been done by W. Cole in the best style. Her lenght is 142 ft. over all, breadth 26 1/2 ft, depth 12'8", and measures 483 7/95 tons carpenters measurement. She has a straight stem, is painted white and green rail and blue and red beads, and will be in commission in about 10 days. As we have already noticed before she will be commanded by Capt. A.M. Mann, who has had a life long experience on the waters, and in that capacity is at home.
