Cleveland, April 3, 1846. - Correspondence of the Buffalo Morning Express:-
There are three new propellers, two schooners and one Brig now building here. One propeller for Messrs Mittleberger & Co. not yet launched, but nearly ready; one for Mr. E. Berkle which is progressing to completion, and one for Messrs Gillett & Co., which will not be out until fall. -- The Brig is of 280 tons burthen, and owned by Messrs Pease & Allen -- one of the schooners is 220 tons and is owned by the Messrs D.& C.T. Richmond, and the other,70 tons, by Mr. D. Clark, all of which will leave port next week ready for business.
There are several new vessels building at different points on the Lake between this and Buffalo.
The Schooner N.C. BALDWIN is lying at Conneaut, where she went ashore last fall, and undergoing repairs. She has been lengthened 20 feet, and will soon be ready to launch, when she will enter service again.
