Yesterday afternoon at 3:00, the new 3-masted schooner, built
by J.M. Jones & Co., at their shipyard in Hamtramck, was
successfully launched. She was named the CHARLES H. HURD, and is
a staunch a craft as was ever built at this or any other place.
This vessel was built for John Hosmer, of Buffalo, and Capt.
Peter J. Ralph of this city, and her dimensions are 155 ft.
length of keel, 30 ft. beam and 12 ft. depth of hold. She is of
600 tons burthen, and will carry 25,000 bushels of corn with
perfect ease. She is intended for the grain trade, is a finely
modeled craft fore and aft rigged, and will no doubt prove a
valuable accession to our lake craft. - Detroit Adv.
