LAUNCH OF A GUNBOAT. - The gunboat which has been building in this city for use on the lakes was successfully launched from William's boat yard on Thursday last. She has 175 feet keel; 28 ft. 8 inch beam; 10 feet 6 inch hold. She is pierced for five guns, four broadside and one swivel gun. She is a fine piece of workmanship, and will be completed by the 15th. of August. She has a single beam engine with 48 inch cylinder and 9 foot stroke. Three other gunboats of like description are in progress of construction, one at Tonawanda and two at Cleveland. One of the latter, we believe was launched a few days ago. - Buffalo Express, Yesterday.
