The Launch. - At about 12 o'clock at noon, to-day, Captain Weeks launched the hull of his new Steamboat, and as she dipped the water Mr. Geo. Weeks, Jr. christened her the "Queen of the West," and at the same time a flag bearing the name was run up from the bows. The Launch was a beautiful sight - every thing went off to admiration.
We learn that the boat has been sold to a Canada Company and that she is to be furnished and receive her new machinery at Hamilton, C. W. The "Queen of the West" is of a beautiful model, and sits on the water "like a duck," and with suitable engines may be the fastest boat on Ontario.
