LAUNCH OF THE U.S. IRON STEAMBOAT.---Yesterday afternoon, thousands of our citizens assembled to see the launch of the U.S. iron steamboat DALLAS, which has so long been on the stocks at the foot of Michigan Street. About half past three, she was "cut loose" and glided beautifully into her destined element, where she sat like a swan upon the waters. She is, we understand, to be immediately completed, and put in commission for service, under the command of Lieut. Ottinger.
