It is under this title that the shipbuilding company, whose projection
it was last week our pleasure to announce to the public of Whitehaven, will
be known, and the prospectus, which has since been issued, and which will be
found in our advertising columns, fully confirms the particulars concerning the
scheme which we were enabled to publish.

       The announcement of the intended formation of such a company has been
received with general favour by the people of our town, and has acted as
general sunshine on the winter of their discontent.

       Intending investors will do well to make early application for shares,
as the greatest part of the capital has already been subscribed. We observe
that a meeting of interested persons is to be held at the Globe Hotel this
(Thursday) evening.
