p.2 Launch - The large three-masted barque Geo. E. Thurston, was successfully launched from the shipyard of Messrs. H.B. Rathbun & Son on Thursday last, at Mill Point. The Thurston was beached high and dry at Wellington in 1869, purchased by Messrs. Rathbun about a year ago, and brought to Mill Point, where she has been rebuilt by Mr. Jamieson, shipbuilder. She is a very fine vessel of 350 tons burthen and is intended to trade in timber between Lake Huron and Montreal. Messrs. Rathbun paid some $1800 for her, and she is now worth about $18,000.
