Launch - On Saturday last the steamboat WISCONSIN was launched from the ship yard in this place. This boat is built of the best materials, put together in the strongest and most substantial manner, and finished off in a style which does credit to all concerned in the erection. For speed and beauty her model is unrivalled. She will be finished this winter, and put in readiness to ply on the lakes by the opening of navigation. her commander Capt. G.F. Power, has all the requisites, as a seaman and a gentleman, for his responsible station, and we most devoutly wish for him and his gallant vessel a long, brilliant and successful career. ---- Conneaut Gazette
