      LAUNCH. - The Rochester Union contains the following:- Com. Hosea Rogers is awaiting the subsidence of the water of the river to such a stage that he may safely launch a new and finely built sailing craft---the JOSEPH COCHRANE---which he has just completed. Some day of the present week will see the noble vessel riding at anchor in our harbor. We wish there were more of this ship-building enterprise at the same point.
