Full Text

" THE GREEN MOUNTAIN B'HOY "- This is the name of a new brig about to be launched from the shipyard of De Great & Co. Ohio City. It is a beautiful model, constructed of the choicest timber, and is strong and well built. She is rated at 260 tons, but will probably carry 350 tons of freight. She measures I20 feet in length, 2I beam and 1O feet hold. She is intended as a kind of packet and will carry both freight and passengers. She has a cabin on deck which will accommodate some 15 or 20 besides the crew. Her hold is clear for freight from stem to stern, and altogether she presents one of the most improved and finest specimens of sail craft upon the lakes. She was built by DeGroat & Co., who have proved themselves in this, as in several other specimens of their handy work, to be artisans of great skill, and she is owned by S.C. DeGroat, as well as A.P. Leland & Co. Success to her. -- Clev. Herald.
