VESSEL LAUNCH. -- The Marine City correspondent of the Detroit Post sends the following:
      On Saturday night last, Capt. W.B. Morley launched one of the largest propellere ever built here. Her length is 193', breadth of beam 33', depth of hold 18'. She measures 1,000 tons, and is the first double decker to have been built here. She is called the JARVIS LORD and is designed for the grain or iron ore trade. Nothing has been spared to make her a first class boat, the timbers and materials being of the best quality and well put together. William Cowie of Detroit is building the engine which is low pressure and measures 42" x 32" cylinder.
