p.2 Mr. Berry's New Ship - An attempt was made yesterday afternoon at half-past four to launch Mr. Berry's new ocean-going ship Rothley, from Portsmouth, but without success. Further endeavors to move her, continued until late in the evening, were of no avail. The reason assigned for the failure to launch the vessel is the hot weather, and the consequent absorption and thickening of the grease on the ways. This is the greater disappointment, as the four previous vessels were handsomely launched, but at a more seasonable period of the year. A large number of spectators were on the spot yesterday, and the Portsmouth Band was in attendance. The Rothley is about 1100 tons burthen, and is nearly fully rigged as she stands on the ways. With the arrangements now being made, it is fully expected that the vessel will be successfully launched tomorrow.
