LAUNCH OF A REVENUE CUTTER. - The new iron revenue cutter GEORGE S. BOUTWELL built by Mr. David Bell for the United States government, was successfully launched at a quarter before six o'clock yesterday afternoon. She is decidedly a fine vessel and is another strong evidence of Mr. Bell's ability as a ship-builder, especially as regards revenue cutters. Her burden is 250 tons, and she is expected to show great speed. In seven or eight weeks she will be ready for service and will then proceed to the seaboard, Savannah, Georgia, being her intended station.
