Launch of a Schooner. -- At one o'clock today, the schooner Cossack was launched from the ship yard of James Navagh, foot of West Second street. The Cossack was built for Messrs. DeWolf and Smythe, by Mr. Navagh, and is a staunch and well proportioned craft. The following are her dimensions: 139 feet keel, 140 1/2 ft. over all, 26 ft. beam, 11 ft. hold, and her carrying capacity is 19,000 bushels through the Welland Canal. She is built after the most approved model, with wire rigging, and is a fine looking vessel. She is to be commanded by Capt. Hoover, an excellent officer, and will be a valuable and worthy addition to our lake craft.

The launch went off successfully, and was witnessed by a large crowd of people. Both the builder and the proprietors are to be congratulated on the appearance of the new vessel.
