Along The Docks. - A new schooner, the Reuben Doud, of Milwaukee, arrived in port this morning from Kingston on her maiden trip. The Doud was built in the interior of Wisconsin, on a small stream back of Oshkosh, where oak is plenty. She was commenced over a year ago, and of course is well seasoned.

The stream into which she was launched this spring was so shallow that a series of wing dams had to be built to drive her down the Oshkosh. She is rather an expensive vessel, the original contractor taking French leave with about $10,000 before the vessel was in frame. She is full canal size, and carries, to light, 23,000 bushels of wheat. She is commanded by Capt. Wm. Vance, a good seaman, who is part owner.

The Doud is of the three mast rig, substantially built, and looks as though she ought to pass through the water without disturbing it much.
