New Vessel. - The new vessel on the stocks at Ald. Geo. R. Rogers' ship yard, is undergoing the finishing touches, and will be launched into her future element the fore part of next week. From a thorough inspection of this vessel, and from what we hear of good judges of marine architecture, we are quite confident that she can be classed among the best vessels on the lakes.

Her length of keel is 135 feet, breadth of beam 25 feet 6 inches, and depth of hold 11 feet six inches. She is square fastened, butt bolted, double kneed, and is built entirely of white oak. Her foremast is 89 feet, and mainmast 94 feet in length. Her canvas and sails were furnished by W. & P. Stewart, sail makers, of this city. The vessel is owned by Kinyon & Collins of this city, and D.C. Abbey, is to be named after a prominent and worthy citizen, whose name has not yet been made public.

Another New Vessel - The Ontario is the name of a new, fine looking schooner, which arrived here this morning from Whitby, with a cargo of wheat and flour. She is 110 feet keel, 25 feet beam, and 9 feet 6 inches depth of hold. She was built by H. Chisholm, and is owned by J. Roe & Co., of Whitby. Capt. Burke is her commander.
