Full Text

A SHIP BUILDING. -- Our enterprising fellow citizen, Capt. Hosea Rogers, is preparing to put up at the mouth of the river, on the east side, a fine vessel of the largest class, the coming winter. Capt. Rogers is the man who does his work quietly and well. He has already the most of the materials on the spot, and his vessel will be ready to launch early in the spring. She will be a barque, full rigged and upwards of 400 tons -- as large as can pass the locks of the Welland Canal. Capt. R. has built several vessels here - the last was the barque CITY OF ROCHESTER. - a ship that does honor to the name she bears. - - Rochester American
      The Democracy, Buffalo
      October 23, 1854
NOTE. -- the CITY OF ROCHESTER was renamed CITY OF OGDENSBURG and was later mentioned as simply CITY.
