The Port Huron Commercial of the 16 says W.B. Hibbard & Co.'s new brig the DAVID FERGUSON, went off in fine style, with masts and rigging all set. She is a beautiful clipper built brig of the following dimensions: Length overall, 139 ft.; length of keel, 125; breadth of beam, 26; depth of hold, 10; tonnage, 325. She was built by Capt. Barber, and will be sailed by Capt. James Stewart. The Commercial adds: "Mr. Hibbard has another vessel on the stocks whhich is in a forward state; she is about half planked and will be ready in a short time to follow her beautiful predecessor to her destined element. She is being very substantially built, and we understand she is owned by N. Luddington & Co., of Milwaukee.

The brig DAVID FERGUSON, mentioned heretofore as having been built at Port Huron, came up the river on Saturday under command of Captain Stewart. She is a finely-modelled, well built craft, and will do honor to her name, and to her enterprising owners, Messrs. W.B. Hibbard & Co. - - - Milwaukee Sentinel.
