THE "ALLIANCE."- This is the name of a very handsome vessel, which made its first appearance in the Toronto harbor last evening, fresh from the stocks. She was built in Oakville last winter, by Mr. Potter, and certainly reflects credit on that gentleman. Her tonnage is 290 tons; length of keel is 110 feet; breadth of beam 25 feet; and depth of hold 10 feet---capacity 12,000 bushels of wheat of 3,000 bbls. of flour. She is owned and commanded by Capt. Sidney Hamilton, of this city, and we wish him every success with his new craft. She commences to load today with flour for Oswego, and we believe she is chartered between Collingwood and Chicago for the season. - Toronto Globe
