Lorain, O., September 29. -- The steamer ASCENSION was launched here today. She is a mate of the steamer PARAGUAY, already nearing completion and with the barges LIBERTY, and LOYALTY, now building at Superior, these boats will be taken to the Atlantic as soon as completed. They are owned by A. B. Wolvin and others. The ASCENSION will be sailed by Capt. Norcross.

      The LOYALTY and LIBERTY, two steel tow barges that are to tow in Atlantic coast trade with the steamers Paraguay and Asuncion, building at Cleveland, were launched at West Superior, Wis., a few days ago. It is expected that one of the steamers and the two barges will reach the coast within the next week or two, but the other steamer will probably not be finished in time to go down this fall. These vessels are managed by Mr. A. B. Wolvin of Duluth.
