Lilla (Brig), 20 May 1846

Full Text

LAUNCH. --- Yesterday at 4 o'clock, the brig LILLA, built at Portsmouth for Messrs. Hunter & Pearson, was launched in the presence of a large number of spectators. The LILLA is strongly built of the best materials, is beautiful in model, and will measure, we believe, 350 tons. This fine vessel is destined for the lake timber trade --- a trade in which Mr. Butler cooly asserts in the House of Commons, we of Upper Canada have no interest !
      We should not omit to state that Messrs Collins & Powers were the builders of the LILLA, nor that her rigging has been prepared by Mr. Proby, the latter of whom, by the way, just sent up to Port Credit the rigging for another new vessel of the same dimensions as the LILLA.
