A LAUNCH. -- Our readers are informed that, unless some accident prevents, the beautiful vessel now on the stocks at Mount Clemens, will be launched on Saturday, the 24th inst. She is 120 tons burthen, and belongs to Mr. O. Newberry & Co. of this city. Should the weather prove fair, we hope many of our fellow-citizens will enjoy a pleasant ride for the purpose of seeing launched into her proper element, the largest and finest vessel that was ever built in this Territory.
