Oneida (Propeller), U18888, 26 Apr 1862
- Full Text
PROPELLER LAUNCH. - The beautiful propeller ONEIDA built at the Kelderhouse ship yard by Mr. Crosswaite for Messrs. Kerderhouse and Palmer was launched into the Erie Basin yesterday afternoon at 20 minutes to 5 o'clock. A large concourse of people had assembled to witness the exciting scene. The steam tugs, and small boats loaded with spectators took position at a short distance from the dock and welcomed the boat as she glided from her stocks. She was launched sidewise. The rope at the bow was cut an instant before the final signal was received at the stern. The bow made the advance movement and as she dropped into the water she glided forward in a most graceful manner, as if her, first trip was to be made without the usual motive power. The ONEIDA measures 750 tons and is truly a magnificent boat.
