Full Text

The schooner J.N. FOSTER was launched from Fitzgerald's yard on Saturday afternoon, April 6. She is a fine appearing craft of the class known as "full-size canaler", that is, she is as large a vessel as can pass through the Welland Canal. She measures 143 feet over all, 26 feet 2 inches beam, and 11 feet 6 inches depth of hold, registering 437 tons burthen. She is to be fitted up and rigged out in the finest and staunchest manner. Her forecastle arrangements will also be better than usually found in a craft of her class.
