A busy day was it on Wednesday for Mr. Shickeluna and great was the number assembled to witness the launch of the fine large schooner, of which the keel had been laid only seven weeks before, as also that of the Wm. Mittleberger, which had been rebuilt. The former, we understand, is owned by W. Gamble, Esq., of the Humber Mills and is intended for a propeller: it is called Maid of the Mill and will carry sixteen hundred barrels of flour. At the time appointed the men began to knock away the blocks and in about an hour they were both floating in that element in which we trust our enterprising friend will for years have the pleasure of seeing them do good service.
