New Steamer Launched.
Detroit, March 27. -- A boy of six, instead of the usual young woman, broke the traditional bottle of champagne across the bows and spoke the name "Put-in Bay" yesterday noon when the new flyer of the lakes dropped from the ways in the shipbuilding yards at Wyandotte and took her first dip into her own element.
Interest in the launching of the new steamer drew a large crowd. The steamer Tourist, of Put-in-Bay arrived shortly before the launching with a large party representing the board of trade and the business interests of the islands of Lake Erie.
From Detroit a large party went to the launching by special boat. Everything had been prepared and the launching went off without a hitch.
