The Messrs. Turners' beautiful brig ODD FELLOW was launched from their ship yard on Saturday. The I. O. O. F. Assoc. presented the brig with an elegant suit of colors with due ceremony. The ODD FELLOW was rigged ready for sea on the stocks, and the launch and the ceremonies drew together quite a large assemblage. - - - Cleveland Herald, April 21.

      The new brig ODD FELLOW came into our harbor a few days ago from Chicago with a full cargo. She was built at Cleveland at the ship yard of S. & A. Turner, and reflects great credit on her builders, being the most beautiful sail craft on our western waters. She made her first trip from Cleveland to Chicago and proved herself to be a very fast sailor, and worked to a charm. Her cabins are finished in steamboat style, airy, light and roomy, with large berths, and everything to render a passage on her comfortable and pleasant. She is commanded by Capt. Turner, a skillful and accommodating officer. Her dimension are 107 ft. keel, 107 1/2 ft. deck, 24 1/2 ft. beam, 9 ft. 5 inch hold; burthen 230 tons.
