ANOTHER LAUNCH.---Launches are becoming such common events in our town of Manitowoc, that we almost forgot to notice them as they occur. The fine clipper-built schooner, owned by a company of Norwegians, was launched a week ago last Saturday. She is a fine looking vessel in the water, large and substantial, and highly creditable to the enterprising young men who commenced the undertaking under circumstances most difficult and discouraging. We trust they will be amply repaid. her name--the LEMIRA--was run up by K.K. Jones, of this place, and is in honor of the daughter of Wm. Jones, Esq. of Chicago --- Manitowoc Herald.
