    HistoryThe article reads 'this superb new frigate-built ship is considered the finest specimen of her class ever built in Quebec. She was constructed by Mr James Erskine Oliver, and is the property of a very spirited and enterprising shipowner, John Dunn, Esq., of Belfast. The HIBERNIA registers 1065 tons measurement, and is about 1600 tons burthen; and, as she is esteemed an excellent model for sailing, and as she is in superior trim for realising these expectations from her cargo, outfit, &c., There is no doubt she will earn a high reputation for her fast sailing qualities. She is about being despatched to Port Adelaide and Port Philip, with a cargo of merchandise and emigrants, by messrs. G. And A. Herring and Co.'
