LAUNCHES. -- Two launches took place yesterday, says the Cleveland Leader, at nearly the same hour - about 5 o'clock. The first was the tug built by Quayle & Martin for the Messrs. Winslow and Capt. Robert Anderson, for use upon the St. Clair Flats. She is a fine specimen of that class of boat, being 124 feet keel, 20 feet beam, and 10 feet 6 inches hold, and built in the most substantial manner. She is called the "Winslow."
The other was a boat built by Ira Laffrinier for A. C. Winslow. She is a fine vessel of her class, being 137 feet keel, 20 feet beam, 12 feet hold, and 400 tons Custon House Measurement. She is designed for canal service. She will be called Unadilla."
