Sandusky register. -- The barge ICSMAN was successfully launched on Saturday from Monk's ship yard. She got off in good shape, moving off the ways smoothly. The dimensions of the boat are as follows: Length over all, 169 feet; breadth of beam, 27 feet; depth of hold, 9 feet. She is a staunch, well proportioned craft, and reflects much credit upon her builder, Captain Monk, a veteran in the business, and who has built some of the best boats on the lakes. She is owned by John Homegardner, of this city, and Miles Fox, of the Peninsula. Captain Feterie will have command of her this season. She expects to leave here today in tow of the tug MYRTLE for Rondeau, where she will load with stave bolts for Roose, of Oak Harbor.
