A SPLENDID VESSEL. - The schooner RUSSIAN, of Oswego, made her first appearance in our harbor yesterday and took on board a cargo of 20,000 bush. wheat for Kingston. The RUSSIAN was built at Oswego last spring, and is owned by the well known firm of Smith & Post of that city. In construction and outfit she could not well be excelled, and notwithstanding the unyielding angularities which must necessarily be observed in building a large vessel like this, designed to pass through the locks of the Welland Canal, her mould is beautiful and she rests in her natural element as gracefully as a duck. She measures 405 tons, and her full capacity is about 23,000 bushels. The RUSSIAN is commanded by Capt. G.W. Clement, a genial fellow and a good sailor. - Chicago Tribune.
