There were three launches in Milan last week. The Free Press says:- On Saturday the 12th. the ECHO was launched. She was built by Capt.Kelly for himself, J.D. Smith, John Smith and J.C. Lockwood, all Milan parties. On Wednesday afternoon, 16th. Gay and Shupe launched the SHAW, built for parties in Oswego. Thursday evening, 17th. S. Ruggles launched the BERLIN, built for Thomas Hamilton of Milan. These are all very fine Schooners.

The new schooner J.E. SHAW, of which considerable has been said, is now loading at the dock of Messrs. Latham & Tozer for Chicago, and attracts some attention. She is well built, and doubtless a fast vessel, and has, what but few vessels of the lake have, a Boston patent steering apparatus, by which one man can do with ease what would require ten men to do in the old fashioned way of steering a vessel. ------ Oswego Journal
