NEW VESSELS. - A small, but fine modelled steamer called the ALIDA, was launched some two weeks ago, at the ship-yard in this place, and is now having her engine and machinery put in. Her form is flat bottomed, adapted to up-river trade, for which she is especially designed. In ordinary times, it is supposed she can ascend the Tittsabawassee as far as the Forks, (Midland City,) and the Bad River to St. Charles. She is built for Messrs. Copeland & Co., of this place.
      The new vessel which has been built at the ship-yard in this place, under the supervision of Capt. Smith, for Bentley & Hoyt, was launched on Tuesday afternoon. Her name is the STAR LIGHT. Her dimensions are 128 feet in length, 30 feet beam, and 11 feet hold. She is of a fine model and staunchly built. - Saginaw Enterprise.
