NEW VESSEL.---A fine new vessel, corresponding in size and build with the RAVENNA, arrived in this port on Sunday forenoon, bound for Chicago with a cargo of coal. She is called the L.H. COTTON, after one of our old veterans of the lakes, who for thirty years past has been wisely and favorably known as commander of many of our first class steamers. The COTTON is a vessel of 395 tons burthen, or thereabouts, is barque rigged, and unsurpassed as regards strength of build and fitout. She is thoroughly double knee'd and arched, and in every possible way well bolted and fastened. She is owned by Messrs. Quayle & Martin of Cleveland, who are also the builders, and Capt. Cotton, who commands her. ---- Chicago Times
