MOUNT VERNON.---This is the name of a fore-and-aft schooner built at Chicago for the Messrs. Richmond, and launched on Friday last. The Journal says she is a most beautiful model, and sets upon the water as graceful as a swan. The VERNON is about 260 tons burthen, and has capacity for carrying 12,000 bushels of wheat. She is a valuable addition to our fleet, second as she is to scarce any craft of her size afloat upon our waters. She will be ready to leave for Buffalo in a few days.
