The Conneaut Reporter notices the launch of the brig BANNER, built and owned by Messrs. Lake & Carpenter. She is the largest brig on the lakes, measuring 470 tons. Her cabin is upon deck, and is finished with staterooms, both for cabin and steerage passengers. The BANNER will be commanded by Capt. M. Capron, and will leave Conneaut for the Upper Lakes as soon as the ice is out of the Straits, touching at Cleveland.

      The BANNER, this beautiful new brig arrived May 7th., fresh from the stocks at Conneaut. She carries 470 tons, being the largest sail craft on the lakes, and her model and general appearance reflect much credit upon the enterprising town from which she sails.
