Any information you can give me about this would be extremely useful.

REVIVAL OF WOODEN SHIPBUILDING.-The great development of the fishing trade at Hull and Grimsby has caused a considerable revival of wooden shipbuilding on the Humber, in fact has in many places created a new industry altogether - that of smack building.  The old established shipyard here, which lately came into the hands of the enterprising firm of Routh and Waddingham, is an instance of this.  The first smack ever built at this place was launched on Saturday last in the presence of a large concourse of people.  She was christened the "Charles Oscar" by Mrs. Waddingham, wife of one of the firm, is a fine smart vessel of 20 feet beam, and owned by Mr. C. Crowther, ship chandler, of Grimsby.  The launch was in every way a complete success.  The yard is now, with its large dry dock, possession of steam-saw, &c., one of the most complete and efficient establishments on the banks of the Humber.
The Charles Oscar was involved in an heroic rescue in the North Sea, following a great gale in November 1880.  She took on board the crew of the Dutch schooner Elizabeth Lorlina, and returned them to Grimsby.  The Elizabeth Lorlina was on the point of sinking when the Charles Oscar rescued her Captain - called Boy - his two sons, and mate.  A fifth crew member had been washed overboard and lost during the storm.  Half a dozen smacks from Grimsby were overdue following the gale, and causing considerable anxiety for their safe return.  The Charles Oscar was abandoned and broke up in May 1884, whilst fishing.  She struck on the Horn Reefs, Jutland, whilst fishing, and the Board of Trade Inquiry found that her captain was below decks resting, whilst leaving one of her crew on deck.  Whilst this was “universal practice” in the fishing community, the Inquiry found that the captain took no account of the tide and other conditions that should have had his personal supervision, and he had his certificate suspended for three calendar months.

RACING PROHIBITED.-On Saturday afternoon a spirited race between four coal carts took place here from the Gate-end to the Waterside.  After much flogging, and in spite of accident, Jonathan came in first by about a length, and the rest in rotation.  Previous to starting they indulged in a “leetle” drop, and it was supposed that Jock had slipped out and removed the lynch pin from Jonathan’s cart wheel, but strange to say, the wheel kept in its place to within about 20 yards of the grand stand, and what is more strange the vehicle was going at such a rate as to prevent it overturning.  The same night the bellman was sent round the town at Winterton to warn the parties that if the scene occurred again they would be prosecuted according to law.
