SHE FLOATS. - The fore-and-aft schooner L.M. MASON, says the Port Huron Commercial of the 30th. ultimo, was launched, after some detention, on Thursday last. She is certainly a beautiful craft, and unless we mistake her model, is destined to be as "fast" and reliable as he whose name floats at her top-mast peak. Her dimensions are: Length, 125 feet; beam, 26 feet; depth of hold, 11 feet; measurement 350 tons.
Mr. J.S. Arnold, her master builder, has certainly just cause to feel proud of the MASON, for she combines more fully than any vessel we have seen, the sailing qualities of the clipper build, with the convenience of a "full model."

NEW VESSEL.- We notice the appearance in our harbor (says the Oswego Journal) of three new and beautiful schooners, the L.M. MASON, GOV. HUNT and CONQUEST. The MASON, we believe, belongs at Huron, and she is the largest class vessel passing the Welland Canal.

NEW VESSEL.- The Oswego Times of Friday notices three new vessels that have been put afloat. They are named L.M. MASON, GOV. HUNT and CONQUEST. The MASON, we believe, belongs at Huron, and she is the largest class vessel passing the Welland Canal.
The latter were built at Olcott, by Rogers, and they are complete models in every joint, of naval architecture. The GOV. HUNT is owned at Youngstown, and the CONQUEST by Messrs. Smith & Post of oswego
