      LAUNCHES
On Monday next, the 12th. instant, two fine vessels fully rigged and sails all bent, will be launched by Mr. Shickeluna, down at the shipyard here. One is a three-masted schooner, of 400 tons burthen, I33 feet keel and 138 feet overall, 26 foot beam and 11 foot hold; the other ,a fore-and-after, of 250 tons, is 100 feet keel, 23½ beam and 9 feet hold. Mr. S, is to deliver them all ready for service - the first for N. Merritt, Esq., St. John, N. B. to be commanded by Captain Jones - the other is for Messrs. Benson & Merritt, to be commanded by Captain King. There is also on the stocks, a propeller, of 142 feet overall; and a schooner, of 110 feet keel, has just been commenced.
For want of sufficient assistance, Mr. S, cannot have the dry dock open before the first of May, and plenty of employment is anticipated for it. The amount of shipbuilding, at this yard is limited for want of hands. As many as thirty additional ship-wrights would meet with constant employment at high wages. (St.Catharines Journal)
