- Full Text
The launch of the new schr. JANE BELL from Campbell & Owen's shipyard took place yesterday afternoon precisely at 3:00, and passed off in every way satisfactory to all. She moved gracefully from the ways into the water some distance in the stream, when she was taken in tow by the stm. CLARA and taken to the dock where she completes her fit out.
Another launch took place an hour later, at 4:00, from the shipyard of J.M. Jones. This vessel has been built for the firm of Trowbridge & Wilcox, of this city, and is of about 24,000 bushels capacity. She is called the MONITOR, and will be commanded by Capt. J.H. Starkweather.
