LAUNCH OF THE "GLAD TIDINGS" - This vessel built by J.M. Jones at his yard, near the City Water Works, for Mr. T. Whitney was launched Saturday. Her masts had been stepped, topmasts and booms slung, and standing rigging set up, so that she went out full fledged for her flight, excepting only that the white wings of her sails were wanting. The dimensions of this vessel, which is designed for the lumber trade, and will carry considerable over 200,000 feet, are 120 feet over all, 26 feet 2 inches beam, and nearly 9 feet depth of hold. The master carpenter in her construction was Mr. Theophilus Boston. - Detroit Free Press.
