      LAUNCH OF THE "BROOKLYN" AT CLEVELAND. - This new steamer built at the yard of Ira Lafrinier, for the Northern Transportation Company, was launched Saturday afternoon about one o'clock. The BROOKLYN is a splendid built vessel, and will be fitted up in a style fully equal if not superior to any in the line. After being placed in the water, Capt. Joe GreenHaugh, with his tug LEVI JOHNSON, took hold of her, and by breaking the ice in the old river bed and the river, succeeded in safely mooring her at the dock of the Cuyahoga Steam Furnace Company, where her powerful set of machinery will immediately be placed in her, and everything made ready for the fast approaching season of navigation. - Herald
