Another Launch - The barque Grace Greenwood, G. R. Rogers, builder, is to be launched from his ship yard this afternoon at 4 o'clock. This is the first attempt of Mr. Rogers in ship building, and the Grace Greenwood fully proves that he is a skillful naval architect. The vessel has all the modern improvements, her cabin is large and commodious, and all in all we have seldom seen a more beautiful craft in Oswego harbor.
She is to be commanded by Capt. Kimball, formerly of the Plymouth Rock. As a navigator, Mr. K. has had large experience, and we doubt not he will prove every way worthy of his new companion. The "Grace" was built for Mr. H. M. Ames, and her dimensions are - length of keel 134 feet, breadth of beam 25 feet 6 inches, depth of hold 14 feet 6 inches, and is of 377 tons burthen, Custom House measurement. We understand she will sail for Chicago the fore part of next week. - Success to her.
