      Messrs. Barber & Mason's new brig ENTERPRISE, built by them, to run in connection with their lumber manufactory, on Grand River, Mich., and their lumber yards here, is a noble vessel. Her length is 93 ft.; breadth of beam, 2 4ft.; depth of hold 10 ft. She is 170 tons burthen, and carries 100,000 ft. of lumber. If Capt. Miller and his crew inherit the "enterprise" of the owners of this fine vessel, she will prove a profitable investment.
