QUEEN OF THE LAKES.---A new schooner with this name, designed for carrying freight and lumber on Lake Winnebago, made her appearance at our docks the 22nd She is a fine looking craft, and exceeds in size any sail vessel afloat on these waters. Her dimensions are, 86 feet keel; 24 feet beam. Her masts are 66 feet in height, 18 inches at the butt, and 14 inches at the top. She measures 150 tons, and is capable of carrying 100,000 feet of lumber. She is owned by Henry Swart and John Williams, of this city, and was built at a cost of $3,300, which will no doubt prove a profitable investment to her enterprising owners. --- Oshkosh Courier
