Full Text

We rejoice to learn that the stm. JOHN OWEN was actually launched on the 21st. ult. and not merely that she was to have been thus launched, as we mentioned last week. And we are still more rejoiced further to learn, as we do by the following extract of a letter from a gentleman at Truago, that "a more beautiful craft never sat upon the water - and although a part of the engine belonging to her was in the foundry of J.R. Dorr & Co. at the time of the fire, it sustained but little injury, and will not retard the progress of finishing, and will be completed in about four weeks, and will make herself a manifest in Monroe harbor, to the admiration to all citizens." Good! Success to her worth and enterprising proprietors, Edward & Davis. - Monroe Advocate, April 1.

      The new steamer JOHN OWEN, Capt. Davis, leaves this morning at 9:00, for Toledo, on which route she is to run regularly. She is a fine boat and will no doubt meet public expectation. We hope to give a more detailed notice in a day or two. - Detroit Adv., May 19
