THE LAUNCH.--A new steamer, the BUCKEYE, built on Grand River, in this town was launched on Saturday last. A large crowd assembled to witness her as she moved majestically off her ways into the river. The BUCKEYE is owned by W.M. Foles, Esq, of this town, great credit is due him for his enterprise in building a steamboat which for style, model, and general arrangement, is pronounced by good judges, as not inferior to any boat out. Tonnage, about 250. ----- Painsville Telegraph.
