The vessel built for the Hon. H. Cameron, at Port Sarnia, by Messrs. Stud & McKenzie, which has been so much admired for her beauty and strength by every person who has seen her, was yesterday consigned to her natural element in the presence of the largest number of people ever seen at one time at Port Sarnia. The ceremony of christening was performed by Miss Emma Vidall, youngest daughter of Capt. Vidall, one of the oldest settlers of the place.
This vessel is called the SINBAD, and will in a few days be ploughing the lakes, under the command of Capt. Charles McGlashan, late of the schooner AMHERSTBURG - a person well worthy of commanding such a vessel.
