LAUNCH. - Quayle & Martin launched at Cleveland on Thursday afternoon about three o'clock, the hull of a fine new fore and aft schooner of about 370 tons burthen. The ice in the old river bed was two feet thick, and great labor was required for two days to clear space enough for her to float in. The vessel is owned by John F. Warner and Ralph Harmon, and will be commanded by Capt. Charles Gale.
