Full Text

The Brig of War, Madison, 22 guns, built at this place during the late war, and which was in several engagements on the lakes, has recently been fitted up as a corvette, by Messrs Hugunin & Mallory. Her tonnage is now 350 tons; she formerly measured 700. She was towed out into the stream on Thursday last, when a salute was fired from the Madison Barracks, and her name changed to General Brady, in honour of Brig. Gen. Brady of the U. S. Army, and lately commanded at this post, who was on board at the time. She sailed on Friday morning for Niagara.
