NEW SCHOONER. - At Manitowoc, on the 3rd. instant, a new schooner was launched, built for Platt & Brother. Her tonnage is not stated. The Herald says: "The CHALLENGE is a vessel to be proud of. She looked beautiful on the stocks. People passing twenty times a day, halted to take another look. In the water she looked all symmetry, all life, and we doubt if the Yacht AMERICA has any more beauty to boast of. A spicy looking craft is the CHALLENGE, and if she does not prove a lively lass upon the waters, we shall conclude that we are no good judge of the article.
