Launch. - The launch at the ship-yard of Miller & Co. on Saturday evening last was witnessed by a large number of citizens, and was a highly creditable affair to all concerned. The vessel glided into her future element with all the east and grace of a belle entering a ballroom. her decks were crowded by a concourse of men and boys who, as she left the ways, sent up a long, loud shout which was re-echoed by the spectators on shore.
This, and the unfurling of a beautiful new flag, bearing her name -
"Plymouth Rock," - gave to the affair a pleasing appearance of novelty and animation. The flag was unfurled at the moment she first touched the water.
The vessel is remarkable for her strength, and is capable of carrying a freight of 350 tons. Her dimensions are as follows:
Length of keel,..........107 1/2 ft.
Breadth of beam,......24 ft. 4 inches.
Depth of hold,............10 ft.
The "Plymouth Rock" is owned by Messrs.. A. Miller & Co., Capt. Kimball, and Robert Green.
