LAUNCH. -- R. Calkins will launch at his ship yard tomorrow a new fore-and-aft schooner built for W.T. Richmond, of Chicago, to be called the KATE RICHMOND. Her dimensions are as follows: 115 feet keel, 26 feet beam, 11 feet depth of hold, capacity of about 300 tons. Besides this fine craft, Calkins has this season built the large schooner WILLIAM CASE, of 375 tons, for Rufas K. Winslow, one of the most capacious and staunch vessels turned out of the ship yards this year. He has also just finished a fore-and-after for Capt. D.P. Nickerson with scow hull, to be called the MARY and LUCY, 90 feet in length, and 22 feet in breadth of beam, with about 180 tons burthen, designed for the coal and grain trade. -- Cleveland Plain Dealer, 24th.
