A NEW ENTERPRIZE.---Our attention was drawn this morning to a neat schooner rigged craft lying at Greers wharf, which we were informed had come through direct from the city of New York without breaking bulk. On making inquiry of Captain R.B. Chapman, we found our informant was correct---and further that the MAGNET, for such is her attractive name, was built at Morristown, St. Lawrence County, N. Y., by her enterprizing skipper, she will carry 115 tons, and passed through the Erie Canal with 62 tons in three and a half feet of water. Captain Chapman left New York on the return trip, a week ago last Monday, and found no difficulty on the passage---his vessel working admirably. The MAGNET had a freight of 250 barrels pork for this port. We hope the MAGNET will always attract full freight and fair weather, and richly reward the enterprize of her young and enterprizing owner.------Kingston Chronicle (undated)
