LAUNCH AT OSWEGO. -- On the 12th inst. , a new schooner, built by Messrs. Goble & Macfarlane, was launched at their yard in Oswego. Prompt on time the last block was removed, and the John T. Mott slid into the water as handsomely as possible. Having to be launched sideways and into the drydock (which was wet for the occasion), the spars were not on the vessel, but they are ready to go in at short notice. The John T. Mott was built for Thomas S. Mott. It is an A 1 vessel, made of the best materials and of handsome model. The dimensions are as follows: Over all, 142 feet, 6 inches; depth of hold, 11 feet 9 inches; beam, 26 feet 2 inches. The Mott will be commanded by Capt. B. J. Molther.
