LAUNCH -- Tuesday last 2:30 P. M. Elegant schooner PEACOCK - 60 tons - Launched from the stock (on same spot where the WELLAND CANAL was built last season at the foot of our village) into a basin on the 12 Mile Creek formed by the construction of the Canal. The PEACOCK was built under the superintendence of Capt. Armington and is owned by Job Loder of Ancester and Capt. Bates, former sailing master of the schooner WELLAND CANAL. She is expected from her model and style of construction to be the swiftest runner on Lake Ontario.
