LAUNCH AT BUFFALO.--Another splendid ship, the Julia Palmer, was launched at Buffalo on Monday last, from the yard of Carrick & Bidwell, in the presence of crowds of delighted spectators. An excellent dinner was provided for the occasion by Mr. Barton of the Mansion House, to which a large number of citizens and invited guests repaired after the launch, where the feast of instinct did not surpass the "feast of reason," nor the flow of Champaign [sic], the "flow of soul." Many spirited toasts were drank, complimentary to Col. Palmer, the proprietor of the new ship, to the builders, Messrs. Carrick and Bidwell, and to Mrs. Palmer, (whose name she bears,) and the ladies of Buffalo.

The Julia Palmer is of 300 tons burden, and built much in the style and proportion of the Milwaukie, the launching of which was noticed last week, and in the same line with which she is to sail as a packet between Buffalo and the ports on the upper lakes. She is to be commanded by Capt. Wagstaff.
