-Launch - Messrs. J. B. Auger & Co. launched from their ship-yard at Montreal on Saturday, for the Montreal Transportation Co., an iron composite barge, named the Kinghorn, after the enterprising steamboat man in Kingston, G.M. Kinghorn, Esq. It was built expressly for the grain carrying trade between Kingston and Montreal; capacity about 20,000 bushels, and cost about $12,000. The barge is expected up daily with the material for Mr. Kinghorn's new iron steamer, manufactured on the Clyde. The composite plan is but new in steamers, and has never been introduced into barge construction. The framing is of iron and planking of wood, a combination that possesses advantages as to strength and roominess.
