A Launch. - Our enterprising ex-Alderman of the First Ward, Thos. Dobbie, Esq., has just finished a new and beautiful steam tug designed for service in our harbor. - This is the third tug Mr. D. has built in about two years for our harbor. The first, the N. Robbins, will go to St. Clair Flats, the present season. The new steam tug is to be launched this afternoon at 4 o'clock, from the foot of Schuyler street. She is a very fine model, staunch built craft, with all the improvements suggested by experience, and peculiarly fitted for the service to which she is designed.

Her dimensions are as follows: length of keel 53 feet, deck 66 feet; breadth of beam 12 feet, and guards 22 inches; depth of hold 6 feet 9 inches. She has a powerful and compact double cylinder engine, 12 inch bore and 16 inch stroke, manufactured by Shepard at Buffalo. She is to be named "J. H. Bloore," after one of the enterprising Canadian firm of Clemow & Bloore. Her builder is Captain Richard Rogers; and she will be commanded by Capt. Wm. H. Manwarring.
