West Bay City, June 4. -- The CITY OF LONDON was launched from Davidson's shipyard yesterday afternoon. This is the last of the "Big Four" to leave the stocks, and although the first one was launched a month ago she is still at her dock here and not ready for sea. The belief that Capt. Davidson has the vessel thrown back on his hands, after having built them for other parties is now universal, although Mr. Davidson will only say, when asked about the matter. "It is not as though I wasn't able to stand it."
      The fact that the first one launched is still at the dock is sufficient evidence of the belief of the owner that the season is one of those in which money can be saved by keeping big boats tied up. In ordinary years a boat is completed and away from her dock within a week or ten days from the time of launching.
