Copy of a letter from Capt. Chauncey to the Secretary of the Navy, dated U. State's ship General Pike, Sackets Harbor, May 1, 1814.

Sir - I am happy to have it in my power to inform you, that the U.S. ship "Superior," was launched this morning without accident.

The Superior is an uncommon beautiful, well built ship, something larger than the President, and could mount 64 guns, if it was thought advisable to put as many upon her. This ship has been built in the short space of eighty days, and when it is taken into view, that two brigs of 500 tons each have also been built, rigged and completely fitted for service since the first of Feb. it will be acknowledged that the mechanics employed on this occasion have done their duty.

I have the honor to be, & c.;
ISAAC CHAUNCEY
Hon. William Jones,
Secretary of the Navy, Washington.
