Along the Docks.       Capt. Timothy Donovan’s new tug, the M.J. CUMMINGS, was successfully and handsomely launched at 4:30 yesterday afternoon in the presence of a large crowd of persons, all of whom seemed to have the same wish to express – that the CUMMINGS may be as successful as the worthy gentleman whose name she bears.
