Three New Vessels. - Ald. Rogers has just laid the keel of a new vessel in his ship yard, foot of First street, which will be followed by those of two others immediately. The first is a fine modeled craft, somewhat after the style of the Young America and W. Lewis, but will be about, but will be about ten feet longer. Her dimensions will be 142 feet extreme length, 26 feet beam, and 11 1/2 feet hold. She is to be built for Ald. Colborn, of this city.

The second vessel will be of the same size and model of the first, the keel of which will be laid at once, and is designed for Clark Abbey, Esq. The third vessel is to be of a different model, and somewhat smaller than the above, being 100 feet keel, 10 feet hold, and 24 feet beam. She is intended for parties in Canada. All these vessels will be magnificent crafts, and will be finished for the spring business. These three vessels will make a beautiful fleet next spring to come from one yard!
