[The Irish Builder April 1, 1869]
There has not been so much activity in the Belfast shipbuilding trade of late; but Messrs. Harland and Wolff have been fairly engaged. Last week they launched from their building yard on the Queen's Island an iron screw steamer of the following dimensions 170ft.; breadth of beam, '23ft. 6in. ; register tonnage, 450 tons. Her engines are of 80 horse-power, and are being constructed by Messrs. Coates, of the Lagan and Prince's Dock foundries. This ship is the first of a line of steamers to be established by Messrs. F. Levich and Co., of Newport and Newry, to trade between Wales and the North of Ireland.
