p.3 Launch of Captain Gaskin's New Barque - This afternoon at 4 o'clock, this fine vessel was launched from Jenkin's Shipyard, and a large number of persons were present. The rigging was decorated with flags, and she presented a very fine appearance. A bottle of wine was broken over her bow by Miss Lewis, the Bishop of Ontario's daughter, when the vessel was christened the British Lion - she then glided most gracefully into her native element.
The Band of the 62nd was present and played several enlivening tunes, and as the vessel glided from the ways played "Rule Britannia."
