LAUNCH OF THE " YOUNG REPUBLIC." - This beautiful clipper yacht, built during the past winter, by Messrs. Beck & Johns for Dr. Lake, will be put into the water at the foot of Erie Street, today, and will be brought into immediate requisition by the hundreds who long for a sail upon the waters of our Bay. She is of splendid model, 25 feet long, 12 feet beam---about 10 ton burthen, and will spread 200 yards of canvass. She is expected to outsail everything of the kind afloat in these waters. Captain Loveridge says she shall do it, and we have no no doubt he will keep his promise.
