LAUNCH OF THE "ISABELLA" of PRESTON
This vessel, that was built in St. John's, New Brunswick, North America,
has been under-going repair work in Preston for some time. On Tuesday
last it was launched from Mr. Speakman's timber yard. She is larger than
any other vessel that has ever belonged to the Port of Preston, and is
capable of carrying 400 tons.

At 11am Mr. Humber, the owner, entered her, when cannons were fired
and flags hoisted, and all having been prepared for the start, at 12.15pm, 
the signal was given by Mr. Speakman to "Let her go," and at that 
moment, John Croft, (his head man) with uplifted axe severed the rope,
and she glided majestically from the stocks into the water, amid the shouts
and cheers of hundreds assembled to witness the scene and hail the return
of the ship to her proper element. She is now lashed fast to the shore, to
be rigged for the Atlantic.

The men who had been at work on her, numbered 40 or 50, were treated 
at Mr. Machell's, New Quay Inn, with different kinds of liquor - teetotallers
prefering ginger-beer, and less sober-sides a stronger beverage. It is
creditable to the parties, however, to add, that all were punctually at work
on the following morning.
