Another Steam-Boat Launch.-- The Charles Townsend, was successfully launched from the Ship Yard of Messrs. Carrick & Bidwell, on the 9th inst. amid the joyous plaudits of a crowd of citizens, who forgot the feelings naturally engendered by the recent political struggle, in witnessing this additional proof of our commercial prosperity. This vessel is of the first class, will have a powerful low pressure Engine, and be tastefully furnished, and ready for the Lake, on the re-opening of navigation. She is owned by Messrs. Townsend, Coit & Co., S. Thompson & Co., and others, and will be commanded by Capt. Simeon Fox, late of the Steam-Boat Enterprise. Her model and appearance afloat, do great credit to her skilful builders: and we hope her success may tend to remunerate the enterprise and energy of her proprietors.
