More New Vessels. - Three large, beautiful vessels will be launched tomorrow afternoon at 2 o'clock, (should the weather permit) from the ship-yards of Ald. George R. Rogers and George Goble. Mr. Roger's vessels are both of like dimensions - 132 ft. keel, 26 ft. 2 inches beam, and 12 ft depth of hold - and are nearly of the same model as the Young America and T.Y. Avery. One is a brig and the other a fore-and-after - the firmer owned by H. Colborne, and the latter by Clemow & Bloore, of the "Game Cock Line."

The vessel built by George Goble and William Crocket, for Doolittle, Irwin & Wright, is also about as large as the Welland Canal locks will admit. This is a new shipyard and the vessel now upon the stocks is a specimen of naval architecture of which the builders may well feel proud. Mr. Crocket is an excellent draughtsman and ship-builder, and he as well as Mr. Goble, enjoy a good reputation.
