Another Launch. - The new and splendid vessel just completed by Messrs. Goble & Crockett for Messrs. Clemow & Bloore, proprietors of the "Game Cock Line," was launched yesterday afternoon in beautiful style, and without the slightest mishap. She is a remarkable staunch, heavy timbered, and thoroughly fastened craft, as well as a beautiful model. Her dimensions are - 136 ft. keel, 26 ft. 8 inches beam, 11 ft. 9 inches depth of hold, and is about 412 tons burthen.

She is finished in superior style, with large and commodious cabin, and does credit to her skillful and enterprising builders. As she glided into the water her name, Wm. Sanderson, was unfurled to the breeze, being christened after one of our most enterprising businessmen. The steam tug Bloore, took the vessel in tow with a selected company of gentlemen on board, and a collation was served up. Toasts were drank and speeches made, and a social time was enjoyed.

Mr. Sanderson toasted the enterprising proprietors, and Mr. C. F. Uhlhorn expressed the wish the wish that the new vessel might be as successful in her voyages and entries as her worthy namesake. This is the third vessel of the fleet of Messes. Clemow & Bloore, which are the Dreadnought, T.Y. Avery, Wm. Sanderson, with a tonnage 1174. Success to them all.
