p.2 The Weather & the Travelling - some steamers still moving.

Launch - On Thursday a new steamer of a beautiful model, built by Ault, was launched

at Ault's Ship Yard, Portsmouth - she was baptized Banshee. The Banshee is intended for the River Line, and is to take the place of the St. Lawrence next spring, when she will have as a consort the splendid iron steamer now building at Montreal for the Hon. John Hamilton. Mr. Perry an enterprising young gentleman is immediately to lay down the keel of another steamer - for freight and passage - on the ways on which the Banshee was built. The latter steamer is owned by Captain Bowen. May she prove a valuable investment.
