Full Text

A new schooner, named the UNDINE, was launched at Hamilton, on the 1st. The Times describes her as a fine vessel of the following dimensions: 110 ft. length of keel, 120 ft. overall; breadth of beam, 28 ft. 9 inches; depth of hold, 10 ft. Her model is one of great beauty, with clipper bow, and a clear run aft. She is painted black, with white lines and false ports. She will register 225 tons, and her carrying capacity will be equal to 13,000 bu. wheat. Iron knees, similar to those in the NEW DOMINION of Picton, were used in her construction, and her build throughout is of the most substantial description. She is wire rigged.
