STEAMBOAT LAUNCHED -- The new steamer built by C.M. SMALL for Fickett & Co., was launched in the waters of Mormon slough at the foot of Centre street, last Saturday evening. The launch took place shortly after 7 o'clock, or just about high tide. She was placed on the ways with her side to the slough and slid off easily, one end striking the water a little sooner than the other.

She was named Hattie FICKETT, in compliment to the only daughter of Dr. S.H. FICKETT of this city, a young lady 15 years of age. Dr. FICKETT is the chief spirit in the enterprise, and we understand, principal owner of the new steamer, which has been built expressly for the San Joaquin river trade. The machinery will be placed on board and put in running order as soon as possible. A portion of the machinery is now on the bank of the slough.
