Launch of the "Fred. Wheeler" - The new tug boat built at Goble's Ship Yard for Mr. Morgan Wheeler was successfully launched this morning in the presence of a large crowd of spectators. She slid gracefully off the ways, and sits the water like a duck. She was christened "Fred. Wheeler" with due ceremony, and will take her place in our harbor to be the pride of our sailor men. We learn that the "Fred. Wheeler" will make a trip to Kingston some time next week, with a pleasure party. Having been honored by an invitation, we shall endeavor to manifest ourselves on the happy occasion.
