THE BARK D.P. DOBBINS. - This new bark first made her appearance on Buffalo Creek yesterday. She was built for Capt. Frank Perew by Quayle & Martin, of Cleveland. Her dimensions are as follows: - Length of keel, 160 feet; beam 32 feet; hold 13 feet; burthen, government measurement, 630 tons. She has carrying capacity for 28,000 to 29,000 bushels of corn, in twelve feet draught of water, and has room for 33,000 bushels under deck, and cost $32,000. She is modeled for speed as well as beauty, is handsomely finished and furnished throughout. On her stern is a fine portrait of our fellow townsman, D.P. Dobbins, Esq., on either side of which is a beautiful device representing an eagle perches in graceful attitude upon a sea serpent. This vessel is a credit to her builders for superior skill in her model and construction as well as the enterprise of her owner. Her outfit was made by Messrs. Morse & perrine, of this city, and is, as is usual with them, as good as the best.
