Hampton (Brig), U11305, 1 May 1845
- Full Text
A new class of vessels equal to the present capacity of the enlarged Welland Canal are making their appearance in our harbor. Among them we notice the schooner SCOTLAND, Capt. Cochran, built at Perrysburg on Lake Erie during the last winter, for Messrs. Carrington & Pardee, of this village. She arrived her on the 15th with 7,000 bu. wheat from Milan, with which she passed the Welland Canal without the least obstruction.
The new brig HAMPTON, built the past winter at Point Peninsula, for Messrs. Fitzhugh & Co., of this village is now taking freight for the upper lakes. She is about 300 tons burthen and will pass the canal with 10,000 bu. wheat.
A still larger brig called the T. WYMAN, was launched from the ship yard on the east side of the river a few days ago. She is said to be the largest vessel yet built for the upper lakes trade, and is more than 300 tons burthen. - Oswego Advertiser.
