Launch of the Steam Tug. - The new steam tug built by Ald. Rogers, and owned by Ald. Dobbie, was launched yesterday afternoon. She went off the ways in handsome style, with all her machinery in. She sets upon the water like a duck, and lifts her magnificent prow like a proud belle. She is the most beautiful craft upon the water we ever saw of her class, and is the admiration of all.

She ha a powerful and perfect engine, and looks as if she could make extraordinary speed. We have given her dimensions heretofore. She is about 150 tons burthen, and built in the strongest manner. She is called the Alanson S. Page, after one of our enterprising citizens. We think Ald. Dobbie will be satisfied with this his last tug. She is an ornament to the port of Oswego.
