The fine brig AUDUBON from Black River, arrived at this port yesterday. She measures 377 tons, and this, we believe is her first trip. Success to this noble vessel and her gallant commander.

THE J.J. AUDUBON. -- This fine vessel, so worthily named, is attracting considerable attention at our wharves. She is commanded by Captain Henry Gadsden, owned by Rufus Winslow, Esq., of Cleveland. Her dimensions are as follows: 137 feet keel, 26 feet beam, 11 feet hold. Her model is intermediate through approaching the clipper. She is said to steer and carry well, handles admirably, and if her looks do not belie her, is an exceedingly good investment of $14,000, and destined to prove a source of great profit to her owner. So says the Chicago Democrat.
