LAUNCH OF A NEW STEAMER - The new steamer built at Newport by E.B. Ward Esq, and which has been christened the COASTER, was launched on Saturday last. She is a superb craft, and "old salts" assure us that no keel ever sat in the water more beautifully. She was modeled by the master builder, Mr. Cornwell, and reflect the highest credit on his taste and skill. She is 155 feet keel; breadth of beam 25 feet; depth of hold 9 and 1/2 feet; registers 400 ton. Her engine is said to be one of the very best on the lakes. She is intended for the coasting trade between Cleveland and Buffalo, touching at Grand River, Ashtabula, Conneaut, Erie, &c. If she fulfills the mission to which rumor assigns her, she will be identified with a most beautiful region of country, and well does she merit her destiny. - Detroit Tribune.
