The MECHANIC, Capt. Tyler's brig, is to be launched at Sandusky City Today, as we learn from our new namesake just commenced at that place. The new craft measures 91'5" in length, 24'4" beam and rates 177 tons.
The HENRY CLAY, another new brig built at Huron, was to have been launched on thursday last.

      The schr. H. CLAY, of Erie, with spars to unship so as to pass through the canal, is in with a cargo of some 90 tons of produce. She is one of a line of similar craft that are intended to ply between the above place and the seaboard direct, for a market. It is, however, a puttering of sort of intercourse with more novelty than profit in it, especially if return cargoes are not secured in advance, and will cease after a season or so
