We noticed day before yesterday, at the Central Railroad wharf, the new and beautiful schr. HOMER RAMSDELL, named after one of the most extensive business men of New York, and owned by Nathan Reeve, of Newburgh, N.Y. Her measurement is 262 tons, and she will stow from 11 to 12,000 bu. of wheat.
      The RAMSDELL is one of a pair of equal burthen and build, intended to form the Detroit & Newburgh line, to carry lumber, &c., from Detroit, St. Clair, &c., to Newburgh via Oswego. She is of beautiful model, and reflects much credit upon her builders, J.B. & N. Jones of Buffalo.
      Her mate in the line is to be named the C. REEVE, and will soon make her appearance in out waters. Both of these fine vessels are under the control of Messrs. C. Reeve & brother, the extensive lumber dealers of this city.
