p.2 Launch - We witnessed yesterday the launch of a beautiful first class Barge, built by Mr. Parkin, of this town, for Messrs. Sanderson & Murray, and intended to be employed in the Forwarding Business. This Barge is the first of seven now in progress of building at this place, namely: Three for Sanderson and Murray, Three for H. & S. Jones, One for Mr. Hackett of Montreal.

These Barges are built entirely of Oak, in the most substantial manner, and reflect credit on the builder, Mr. Parkin, and their enterprising Proprietors, whose public spirit does not seem to be daunted by the uncertainty of the times.

The Barge launched will, we understand, be despatched to Montreal, as soon

as her loading can be completed. [Brockville Recorder]

Outrage Upon Outrage - British firing on steamer United States and schooner Pardee.
