TUESDAY last was a red letter day in our town for the third steamer built on our waters was launched. The CITY OF OWEN SOUND was built here last winter. She is a fine Propeller, built on the same ways as the FRANCES SMITH by Mr. Simpson the builder of the latter vessel, for a Toronto Company, of which Mr. A.M. Smith is we believe Chairman. Previous to the launch of the CITY OF OWEN SOUND, the BELLA McPHEE, which had been on the stocks beside her to be lengthened, was launched for the second time. The BELLA McPHEE has been lengthened over twenty feet, and had another mast put in her. [part of article]
