LAUNCH.---We learn from the Maumee Times of the 4th. inst., that the new propeller building at that place by Messrs Spencer & Moore and W.B. Dix., was launched on the 1st of April. The Times says she is a very pretty craft, and is beautifully modeled. Capt. H. Hubbell, the builder, the builder of the SAMSON, PRINCETON, SUPERIOR, &c., is her master builder, and her joiner work is under the superintendance of D.Taylor, Esq. This propeller is about 350 tons burthen and will draw some five and a half feet of water, when loaded. She is intended to be fitted out with good commodious cabins, for the accommodation of a large number of passengers. her owners have not yet selected a name for her.

      The new propeller GLOBE, built at Perrysburgh, and commanded by Capt. C. Ludlow, formerly commander of some of our best steamboats, has made her appearance at Toledo. She is to be towed to Cleveland to receive her engine, built by the Cuyahoga furnace. She is of the largest class.

NEW PROPELLER "GLOBE" :- The Toledo Blade gives the following descrip tion of this new propeller, which has been built at Maumee, and is now ready for her engine, which she takes in at Cleveland.
She aeasures 250 ton, is 150 feet long, 30 feet beam on deck -- has 26 State-rooms with double berths, on the upper deck, -- a gentlemans cabin more than a hundred feet long, and two steerage cabins, having together 60 double berths. Her engine, built at the Cuyahoga Steam Furnace, will be put in on her arrival at Cleveland. It is expected to have power sufficient to give her a movement of 9 or 10 miles an hour. Her draft of water, light, will only be about 4 ½ feet--fully loaded 7½ feet. Notwithstanding her fine cabins and numerous State-rooms, she has great capacity for freight, as nearly the whole of her first deck, and most of the room under it may be used for that purpose.
If she proves to be as good and profitable as her appearance warrants us to expect, she will be worthy and only worthy, to be commanded by Charles Ludlow, in whom everybody has a well founded confidence.

ANOTHER.---Capt. Ludlow's new propeller GLOBE, made her first appearance in port yesterday morning. The GLOBE hails from Maumee City, a place celebrated for the fine lake craft it turns out; and in this instance has gained laurels that much larger places might be proud of. The GLOBE justly belongs to the first class, in speed as well as finish, having a splendid upper cabin, finished in the most approved style. Capt. Ludlow has been favorably known as commander of some of the best boats on the lakes, in their day, and is deserving the post he now holds.
