p.3 Fast Sailing - Every week the "fastest sailing on record" crops up. Now the Oswego Times steps up with very quickest on the books. The schooner Vienna, Capt. Campbell, left that port on Saturday at 2 a.m., went to Darlington, took on a cargo of barley, and arrived back at daylight on Sunday morning.

Launch - The Smith's Falls people turned out in strength on Saturday, to witness the launch on the raging Rideau Canal of Mr. Wm. O'Mara's new schooner, christened the Julia by Mrs. O'Mara. It glided into the water as gracefully as a duck into water. She is to be brought to Kingston, and will be completed here for lake service. Dimensions: 90 feet long, 27 feet beam, 8 1/2 feet depth of hold. Success, Julia.
