Another. - A new vessel called the FAVORITE was launched at Perrysburg a few days since. She will soon be rigged, and afloat on Erie. Perrysburg turns out shipping like a "chair factory." The crafts too are staunch, well built specimens of lake shipping, and do honor to the enterprise and taste of the flourishing port from which they hail.

      Perrysburg, Aug 9. -- The FAVORITE, of Perrysburg -- New Vessel -- We neglected to notice in our last, the beautiful launch of this vessel. from the ship yard of Capt. David Wilkison. It was indeed the prettiest launch we ever witnessed, as well as the prettiest modeled lake craft we ever rested our eye upon . The builder, F.N. Jones has done himself great credit in the construction of this vessel; and we cannot but express the honest conviction of many a competent judge, that the FAVORITE, of Perrrysburg, exhibits in a high degree, the skill and taste of her architect, and that she is not surpassed in beauty by any lake vessel now afloat. Her spars are now up, and the rigging fast being fitted for the trade of this place. She will be out in a few days. --- Miami of the Lake
