SCHOONER DAN MARBLE.---A new fore-and-aft schooner bearing the above name, made her first appearance in our harbor Saturday. She hails from Conneaut, Ohio, where she was built the last winter by John Tyler for Messrs. Lake & Carpenter. Her length of keel is 98 feet, breadth of beam 24 feet 10 inches, depth of hold 9 feet 4 inches. her burthen is 240 tons carpenter's measurement, and she will carry 10,000 bushels of wheat. For beauty of model and strength she fully sustains the reputation of her hailing place, for the construction of large and fast vessels.
