    Launch. - Since Saturday a fine new fore-and-aft schooner, of the largest dimensions passing the Welland Canal, has been launched from the ship yard of Messrs. Lee & Lamoree, by whom she has been built the past winter, for Messrs. Latham, Tozer & Perry.  She is called the DELOS DeWOLF, a name of great financial and political prestige in this city. Mr. DeWolf is the financial officer of the City Bank, and the hard shell delegate from
this district to the Cincinnati Convention.
   He is an energetic and successful man, and generally carries his points, whether he gets into the Cincinnati Convention or not. At any rate the vessel has a good name, indicative of success, and one that will be likely to command for her enterprising owners liberal commercial accommodations. The DELOS DeWOLF was launched with spars in and sails bent, completed for loading, and appears in our harbor today with flying colors.
