      The Anchor line stm. CODORUS, building at the Union Drydock, will be launched at 3:00 today from the iron yard of that company and the proceeding will no doubt, be witnessed by a large number of people. The CODORUS is of the new straight back pattern and will be something of a curosity on that account alone. Following are her dimensions: Length of keel, 275 ft.; length over all, 290 ft.; moulded beam, 40 ft.; moulded depth, 26 ft.; dispalcement at 16 ft. draught, 4,340 tons; triple expansion engines, diameter cylinders, 20, 30, 54, stroke 45 inches; 2 boilers, 12 ft. long, 14 ft. diameter, for 160 pounds steam; wheel 12 1/2 ft. diameter, 16 ft. pitch.
