Wind and Hail. 
      A Startling Display Of The Elements On Saturday. 
      The shipping in the river suffered also. The schooner TRENTON broke loose from her dock and drifted away, but was not damaged. The schooner TRADE WIND was lying just outside the harbor, and when the squall came up an effort was made to get her inside, and in doing so a hole was stove in her starboard side by running against the dock.

The “TRADE WIND.” — The Brighton Sentinel has a long and spirited account of the launch of the schooner TRADE WIND, which took place at Colborne, C.W., on Wednesday last. This being the first vessel built at that place, the launch called together two or three thousand persons to witness it. 
Among them was a large number of ladies, who presented Mr. J. M. Grover, the owner, with a beautiful flag, for his vessel, in a neat and appropriate address, to which Mr. Grover responded in suitable terms. The Sentinel says, “great praise is due to Mr. Peter Lamoree, the builder, for his skill and calculation, in arranging everything so that no accident occurred, and that the vessel did not ground, as the water was barely enough to carry her 
      “After the launch a number of Mr. Grover’s friends repaired to his residence, and partook of a lunch prepared in sumptuous style. We wish Mr. Grover every success, and long may he be spared an ornament to Colborne and surrounding country.” 
      Since writing the above, we have seen the TRADE WIND, she having arrived in our harbor; and a beautiful craft she is, a credit to her enterprising owner and the skillful mechanic who built her. Mr. Lamoree is an old resident of our city and we are pleased to witness this evidence of his skill as a shipbuilder. The Trade Wind is to be employed principally, in the large and rapidly increasing trade between this place and Colborne.
