Launch At Hamilton - On Thursday evening, at five o'clock, the new screw-steam tug Hero was launched at Cook's Wharf. She went most beautifully off the slip without any accident occurring, and will be ready to proceed to Dundas on Monday to have her boiler put in. She is an exceedingly well modelled craft, built by Mr. Lavellee, boat builder, in this city, and owned by him and Messrs. Barr and Maxwell. It is intended she shall ply between this and the Valley City, as well as on the Lake for the purpose of towing vessels, and will take passengers to various points on the Bay. - Herald.
