Launch At Hamilton - The Times says a new and beautiful three- masted vessel was launched on Wednesday afternoon [August 18], from the yard of Mr. A.M. Robertson, at the foot of MacNab street, and as she glided off, her colours were flung in the breeze, displaying the name of Agga Hope - a compliment to the daughter of Adam Hope, Esq., of Hamilton. The new craft is of the most substantial build, though her lines are gracefully drawn, and the model was much admired by connoisseurs in naval architecture. She is designed for the Lake trade, and has a capacity equal to 15,000 bushels grain. Mr. Robertson, the owner and builder, is one of the most enterprising ship builders heretofore, which have carried his fame abroad. The present is one of the best specimens of his ability.
