Another Launch. - A beautiful new vessel was launched from the ship-yard of Alderman Weeks at 3 o'clock this P.M. A large gathering of our citizens, among which were scores of ladies, assembled on the West Pier to see the vessel launched. Precisely at forty minutes past three she left her ways and floated into the lake in gallant style, a bottle of wine was broken on her bow and a color bearing her name, "Merrimack," floated on the breeze. It was a beautiful sight, and as the cheers went up from her decks from the persons on board, the scene was very exciting. She was towed into the harbor by the little steam tug, "S. Schuyler."
