p.2 Elevator Sunk - The elevator Hope has no sooner been raised than Messrs. Calvin & Breck's workmen are employed to raise the elevator Orb, partly sunk in the slip at the foot of Earl Street. The services of Mr. Donnelly, the experienced diver, are of great advantage. Large pumps are to be used on the boat when the proper preparations have been made.

-Launch of a Vessel - Yesterday a fine new schooner, of 260 tons burden, was launched at the Marine Railway ship-yard. She is owned by John Carruthers, Esq., and was built under the supervision of Mr. Geo. Thurston. As she glided swiftly from her position on the ways, a young lady bestowed on the new candidate for nautical honors the name of Annandale. The vessel met her natural element most gracefully, amid the cheers of those on board, stoutly re-echoed from the shore. The Annandale was taken in tow by the tug Ellen Jeffers and brought to a mooring, where she will be completely rigged out by Mr. James Falconer, preparatory to her first cruise. She has about 110 feet length of keel, 25 feet beam, and 9 feet 3 inches depth of hold, with a capacity of about 12,500 bushels. In every respect she is a model of neatness and good workmanship. She cannot fail in reflecting credit on her builder.
