LAUNCH. - The schooner J. Vilas was launched on Saturday last at Two Rivers, and towed to this place to receive her spars and rigging, on Sunday morning, by the steamer Cleveland. She was built by Rand & Harbridge, and is now owned entirely by Messrs. Rand & Sons of this village. She is named after one of our leading merchants, and is a credit to her names sake, the builders, and the county from which she came. The following are her dimensions: Length on deck 107 feet, breadth 26 feet, and depth 9 feet, with a measurement of nearly 225 tons. She is airy and graceful in appearance, making her look much smaller. Capt. Albrecht, a good sailor and a worthy man, is to have command of her. - (Manitowoc Tribune.
