      LAUNCH. - The brig HANOVER was launched from the ship-yard on the Menomonee, Saturday at 4:30 P.M. She went off the ways beautifully, and presented a fine appearance in the water. Her dimensions are as follows: Length of keel 137 feet, length over all, 142 feet; beam 26 feet; depth of hold 13 feet. The HANOVER was built by Messrs. Ellsworth & Davidson for Otto Wermuth, and is designed for the ocean trade. If it is deemed possible to effect the passage of the St. Lawrence, she will take her first clearance for Hamburg this season. She registers about 400 tons. - Milwaukee Sentinel.
