      LAUNCH. -- We are informed that the Railway Co. intends to launch on Monday at 4 p. m. from their yard another of the steam schooners built for Messrs. Woodward & Hutchison of Port Stanley, to be called the LONDON -- these vessels fitted with the Ericson propellers, if successful, of which there can be no doubt, will form a new era in the history of the navigation of this province, carrying as they are intended to do, a full cargo from the upper lakes to Montreal and Quebec without breaking bulk. They are to decend the rapids to Lachine and return by the Rideau Canal. We wish the enterprising proprietors the success their energy deserves.
      The St. THOMAS launched some time since, was expected to leave Niagara this day on her first upwards trip, and will be here in a week or 10 days on her way to Montreal
