      LAUNCH. -- Messrs. Crockett & Rogers launched the new vessel built for H.M. Ames, Esq., this afternoon at three o'clock. We have spoken of her on a previous occasion, when building, and will only add that she is in every respect a fine looking craft, that will do credit to the city she hails from. We have not yet heard her name.
      P.S. --- At 3 P.M. She had not been launched, owing to the wind and high sea. -- Oswego Journal.
