Cumberland Ship Building

       Mr. LAMPORT, the eminent ship-builder of Workington, is now about
engaging to build two splendid vessels at his yard in that town, one of 1,200
tons, and the other 1,000 tons burden. Messers PEILE, SCOTT & Co., of the same
place, will follow with another of 1,000 tons.

       These will be the three largest vessels ever built in this county. 
Such stubborn facts are not to be disproved; they are the best evidences in
favour of free-trade, and tell much against  those selfish individuals who rail
against the recent alteration in our navigation laws.
