-The New Vessel - As stated, the fine new schooner built by E. Bopree (sic - Beaupre ?) for Messrs. Fraser & George of Kingston, will be launched from Mr. Wm. Fry's new shipyard, Mill Haven. No expense has been spared in making her a first-class vessel. She is three-masted and is 130 feet in length, 26 beam, 11 feet in the hold and will carry 18,000 bushels. This being the first vessel launched from the new shipyard, Mill Haven anticipates a lively time.

-Imports - 10.

-Ashore - prop. Empire beached below Gananoque.
