Full Text

The scow schooner built by Mr. Thomas Dunford at his yard in this city, was launched yesterday, which was fully one day sooner than he expected she would be sent off. This new vessel is owned by four gentlemen of this city. She will be ready for service in about 10 days and measures 135 feet over all, 127 feet keel; 10 foot hold; 30 feet 6 inches beam. Mr. Henry McMorran furnished her outfit with the exception of her sails and colors, these being made by D. Robeson. As she left the ways, Mrs. Dunford, who was on board, announced her name, giving the title of FRED J. DUNFORD, the name of Mrs. Dunford's boy.
