Capt. Monk launched the new stm. GEN. SHERMAN successfully yesterday. Her length of keel is 100 ft.; breadth of beam 22 ft.; depth of hold 5 ft. The GENERAL SHERMAN is built upon a new design entirely, and intended for the lake freighting business. Her engine is already placed and is 5 ft. stroke and 15 inch bore, with a pony engine attached to fill boiler and pump bilge water, should she ever be troubled that way. In consideration of the GEN. SHERMAN being a perfect success, the owners Messrs. Luce, Catherman and Moore, propose giving a splendid supper to the parties employed in her construction. Her boilers will be put aboard in about 2 weeks, when she will be ready for business.
