QUAYLE & MARTIN, on Saturday launched a three masted top-sail schooner, for N. C. Winslow, and Capt. Sol. Rummage; the latter owning one-fourth, and to sail her. She measures 152 feet on deck, 142 on keel, 30 feet 6 inches beam, 11 feet 6 inches hold, and about 450 tons. She is double arches, finished in the style of the SWEEPSTAKES, one of the nicest vessels afloat, and is said to be the strongest vessel ever built here -- which means as strong as ever built elsewhere for merchant service. Her name will be R. G. WINSLOW, in honor of one who, in his lifetime was so intimately connected with the interests of Lake Navigation
