NEW VESSEL.---The Oswego Palladium of the 14th. says: Ald. Rogers will lay the keel, in a few days in his ship yard, of a new vessel to be built for Messrs. W. Lewis and Capt. Charles Parker, which is to be launched about the first of September. She is to be clipper built, and brig rigged, and of the following dimensions:-- 120 foot keel, 25 feet beam, 10 feet 6 inches hold, and wil carry 15,000 bushels of wheat through the canal. It is expected she will be one of the finest specimens of sail craft on the lakes.

NEW BRIG.---The new brig which is being built by Ald. Rogers, for Wm. Lewis and Capt. Charles Parker, is progressing finely, and will be off the stocks the first of next month. She is a beautiful model, and will be a good addition to our lake marine. She is to be commanded by Capt. Parker.----Oswego Journal, 6th.
