      Launch of the INDIANA. - This vessel was not launched as announced, but this morning she "slipped her cable," and glided into her natural element as supple as a duck. The INDIANA
was built by G. S. Weeks, for H.M. Ames of this city, and is the largest vessel ever launched at this port, and cost about $14,000. She is 141 feet 6 inches on deck, 25 feet beam and 10 + feet hold.

      Quick Work. - The barque INDIANA, launched last Monday from the ship-yard of G.S. Weeks, has been built in the short space of forty-five days, and is the largest and best constructed vessel ever built at this port, which, by the way, turns out some of the finest craft on the western lakes. Messrs. Ames, the owners, are loading the INDIANA with railroad iron for Toledo, and expect to realize the sum of $1,500 from her first trip. This is the way our shipping merchants are doing business. The commerce of Oswego is rapidly increasing, notwithstanding the various obstacles which impeded its resist less, onward progress.
