LAUNCH.---The OCEAN EAGLE was launched at 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon, in the presence of a large assemblage. We never saw a vessel got off the stocks with so little trouble. The OCEAN EAGLE is a very fine looking craft, with a clipper look that we admire, and we doubt not her sailing capacities are good. Alderman Colburn is the owner. The other vessel on the stocks west of the pier Mr. Roger intends launching the latter part of the week. Capt. Sterns is to sail her. --Oswego Times
