    An engraving from page 156 of the Illustrated London News, 22 February 1851, titled 'The ship HIBERNIA, built at Quebec' with its related article separately attached.
    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.'
