NEW BRIG. - We this morning paid a visit to the new brig CONCORD, now lying in our river, where she has for several days been taking on board her masts and standing rigging. In every thing which tends to render a sail craft safe and expeditious, we are quite sure the CONCORD has not a superior, if she has an equal, upon the lakes. When we say that she is staunch we use no idle term, but mean to be understood that she is as strong as the best Ohio white oak and iron bolts can well make her. Her spars are exceedingly fine sticks, and as they taper aloft, exhibit an air of grace and beauty peculiar to vessels of her rig.
      The CONCORD was built, we learn, by W. S. Lyons, of Black River, for the owners, Messrs. H. N. Gates & Co., and cost at her completion, between $9,000 and $10,000. Her dimensions are as follows: Length, 115 feet; breadth of beam 24 feet; depth of hold 9 feet 3 inches. Her measurement is 234 tons, and she draws when loaded, 8 feet 6 inches. She is commanded by Capt. Lumm, a gentleman, as well as an able and experienced seaman. The CONCORD sails next week for Chicago. - Cleveland Herald.
