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.


Lake Harbors.--Among the appropriations contained in the acts of the recent session of congress, are the following:--For the improvement of Buffalo harbor, 15,000 dollars; to remove the obstructions at the mouth of Grand River, 5,620 dollars; to remove the obstacles at the mouth of Ashtabula Creek 12,000 dollars; for the same purpose at the mouth of cunningham's Creek 2,000 dollars; for the same purpose at Huron River 5,000 dollars; for surveying Sandusky Bay, 400 dollars. In addition to the preceding an appropriation has been granted to complete the harbor at Erie. We do not recollect to have seen, in the proceedings of congress, any opposition to the above grants. This certainly is a strong proof of the expediency of the objects to be accomplished, and the propriety and justice of the appropriations.
