LAUNCH. -- A small steamboat was launched at Huron on Thursday of last week. Capt. Church, builder. The Commercial brags that she will be the greatest little boat ever built upon these or any other waters. We understand she is to be called the St. LAWRENCE. Why not Huron ? The latter is a fine old Indian name, and a thriving town that turns out so many crack boats should not be too modest.

      The name! The Huron Commercial says Capt. Church's new boat will never be called St. LAWRENCE, and adds,
      " How would GEN. SCOTT, suit your fancy as a name for her, Mr. Herald? Think ye, it would be a 'tall' name? or is there not 'Indian" enough about it?
      It suits to a "t."
