A NEW VESSEL. -We perceive at the grain house of the Central Railroad, says the Detroit Advertiser, a beautiful new schooner of the largest size, loading with wheat and flour for Ogdensburgh. She was built by McDermott, of Detroit, and this is her first trip. She is commanded by Capt. McGinn. This handsome schooner is named the KATE ROBINSON, in compliment to a young lady, the daughter of an eminent produce dealer in Boston, who purchases annually from 80,000 to 100,000 barrels of flour in this market.
