      NEW SCHOONERS. -- Two new schooners arrived in our harbor from the west yesterday. The ALBATROSS, Capt. Spencer, is a splendid craft. She was built at Cleveland, and some idea of her capacity may be formed by looking at her cargo, which was 3,400 bbls. flour, besides other freight.
      The J. W. BROWN, Capt. Howard, came in from Toledo. She, too, is a beautiful model. -- Buffalo Courier.
