NEW VESSELS. -- Work on the new United States lighthouse tender to be called the HAZE, now in progress of construction at the yard of Gibson & Craig, Buffalo, is progressing as rapidly as practicable. The length of the vessel will be 143 feet, breadth of beam, 25 feet; depth of hold, 16 feet. She will have two decks, the main hold being 9 feet and 'tween decks 7 feet. The HAZE will be provided with a low pressure engine 26 inches in diameter and having a 26 inch stroke. The boiler is being constructed by M. Riter, of Buffalo, and will be 15 feet long by 8 feet in diameter. It has not yet been decided where the engine will be made. There is some talk of procuring one in New York City, and Mr. Craig is now at the East on business relating to the engine. The new steamer HAZE will take the place of the old one of the same name. Her special duty will be to supply with material the lighthouses in the Tenth District, which includes a large part of the lake region. She is to be completed by June 1st. The frames are now all up and the sides are partly on.
