New Schooner Case.
The new three masted schooner George M. Case, Captain John Conner, was the centre of attraction yesterday to those of a nautical turn. The Case was built at Saugatuck, Lake Michigan, by Wm. Brown of this city for Conger & Case of Fulton, and is owned by that firm. She is 143 feet long over all, 26 feet, 3 inches beam, and 12 feet deep in the hold in the shallowest place, and registers 390 tons.
She is substantially built (the oak around Saugatuck being plenty and choice) and is as well fastened as a vessel can be. Like all immense carriers (she floats easily 24,500 bushels of wheat with a good side out of the water) she is far from being a beauty. Captain Conners says she sails and steers well in rough weather is as dry as a duck. Larry Ward, of this city, one of the best carpenters in the State, finished her cabin, sufficient guarantee that the work was done in a satisfactory manner.
