Launch Of The New Schooner Havana. - The new schooner Havana, built by A. Miller & Co. for T.S. Mott, was launched yesterday afternoon, from the foot of East 2d street. A large crowd assembled in the vicinity, every available spot being occupied, from which a view of the vessel could be obtained.
The Delaware & Hudson Coal Co.'s trestle work was covered with spectators. Most of the crowd having arrived about an hour before the launch took place, they showed commendable patience in waiting under the burning rays of the sun which was particularly hot yesterday afternoon.
The workmen commenced operations about half past four o'clock, and it was full half an hour before everything was ready. Finally the last blow was struck, and the gallant craft glided gracefully into the water amid the deafening cheers of the crowd.
