On Tuesday last [April 14], at half past 2 P.M., the elegant schooner Peacock, 60 tons burthen, was launched from the stocks, (on the same spot where the Welland Canal was built last season, at the foot of our village) into a basin in the 12 mile creek, formed by the construction of the canal. She went off in fine style, amid the acclamations of a large number of spectators assembled on the occasion. The Peacock was built under the suprintendence of Capt. Amrington, and is owned by Job Loder, Esq. of Ancaster, and Capt. Bates, former sailing master, of the schooner Welland Canal. She is expected from her model and style of construction, to be the swiftest runner on Lake Ontario.
