THE NEW YACHT "JAKE MILLER." - We yesterday had the pleasure of a short ride on board of the beautiful new yacht " JAKE MILLER," built by the Carroll Brothers for Messrs. Payne, Meredith & Greenwood. She is 57 feet in length, 4 1/2 feet depth of hold; is very tastily fitted up, and runs, as we are assured, "like a scared Indian." Mr. Miller, the gentleman for whom the yacht was named did the handsome thing in the way of colors, and feels a little proud, as well he may, of his tidy namesake. Pleasure parties, wishing to charter one of the finest little crafts in our waters, should apply at Greenwood's, Lower Black Rock.
