Launch of the "Sardinian." - At 9 o'clock this morning another vessel - the third from this yard this season - was launched from the yard of Messrs. Goble & Macfarlane, the affair proving in every way a success. A goodly number of people witnessed the launch, and the "Sardinian" found her element amid their cheers. She is a trim built little schooner, and has the marks of a staunch craft.

She is owned by Captains Tuttle and Richardson, and will be commanded by the former. Her dimensions are as follows: 95 feet keel; 104 feet over all; 24 1/2 feet beam; registers 225 tons, new measurement , and will carry 11,000 bushels of grain. Good luck to the gallant little "Sardinian," and her commander, say we! No one port, to say nothing of shipyards on the lakes, has built as many vessels this year as Messrs. Goble & Macfarlane, and they deserve credit for their enterprise.
