The old barque, CITY OF ROCHESTER, sunk last fall near Ogdensburgh by the steamer ONTARIO, is being raised. The vessel was built here many years ago by Capt. Hosea Rogers, and subsequently sold to a party in Ogdensburgh, who substituted the name of the place for Rochester, as part of the ship's name or hailing place.

A SHIP BUILDING. -- Our enterprising fellow citizen, Capt. Hosea Rogers, is preparing to put up at the mouth of the river, on the east side, a fine vessel of the largest class, the coming winter. Capt. Rogers is the man who does his work quietly and well. He has already the most of the materials on the spot, and his vessel will be ready to launch early in the spring. She will be a barque, full rigged and upwards of 400 tons -- as large as can pass the locks of the Welland Canal. Capt. R. has built several vessels here - the last was the barque CITY OF ROCHESTER. - a ship that does honor to the name she bears. - - Rochester American
