LAUNCH. -- One of the splendid steamers in process of building for the Michigan Central Railroad Co., the PLYMOUTH ROCK, was launched yesterday forenoon in the presence of about 500 persons. It was one of the finest launches ever made at the yards, and the boat took to the water like a duck and sits there with all the grace of a queen.
