p.3 Launches - The Marine Railway Co. launched a first class barge, the Albert, on Thursday, and another of the same description, the Victoria, on Monday, both for Messrs. McPherson & Crane. These barges are built in the most substantial manner, and reflect great credit on Mr. Shea the builder, not only for this most desirable quality, but also for the beauty of their model. They are each capable of carrying 4000 bushels wheat.
The steam boat Sir James Kempt will commence her regular trips up the Bay of Quinte tomorrow morning at 8 o'clock.
