p.2 Launch - On Wednesday last a fine iron steamer, intended for the river and upper lakes navigation, was safely launched in Montreal by Messrs. Bartley & Dunbar. This vessel was a consort to the ill-fated steamer Her Majesty, built for Capt. Dick, in Britain, and lost on her voyage out. The different parts of the steamer launched were manufactured in Scotland, and brought out in pieces, and put together by the firm we have mentioned. The launch was most dexterously managed, the hull being slid sideways into the basin. She has every appearance of a clipper. [Montreal Gazette Nov. 18th but not credited by Whig]
