Launch.--The elegant Steam Boat, Niagara, of 160 tons burthern, will be launched from the old shipyard, this day at 12 o'clock.

The Clay, on the last trip, grounded on the right bank of the channel in clearing our harbor. She was got off without damage, after half an hour's delay. The accident happened in consequence of running out of the usual track.--Buffalo Journal.

[The reason of the Clay running out of "the usual track," was owing to some inhabitant of Buffalo harbor, casting off her wheel ropes, the moment she started.]
