The launches yesterday called a larger attendance, particularly of ladies, than we have ever before seen. The beach and grounds in the vicinity were covered with spectators, and the greatest interest and enthusiasm manifested. The three vessels were floating on the bosom of old Ontario soon after the hour noticed, with colors flying and presenting a gay spectacle.

A pleasing episode occurred with the launch of the Dreadnaught, on which were a number of ladies and gentlemen. A tug took her in tow into the lake a short distance as soon as launched, and the company on board in the meantime partook of a bountiful repast furnished by the owners Messrs. Clemow & Bloore.
