Soon after 4 p.m. yesterday afternoon the schooner ST. ANDREWS was launched from the ship yard of A. Muir on Black River. Quite a crowd was present and she made her way into the water in fine style. She is 135' keel x 30' x 14. Mr. Muir says it is the most complete rebuild he ever undertook, their being only a small part of the keel and bottom left from the old hull. She is 425 tons (custon house measurement), an increase of 102 tons since her rebuild.
