NEW VESSEL. - The new vessel which has of late been fitting out in this city for E.G. Merrick, has been finely completed, and is now ready for service. She is called the SELKIRK, and is a fine substantial vessel, fore and aft rigged. Her length is 140 feet, 25 1/2 feet beam, depth of hold 12 1/2 feet. It is presumed by good judges that no better vessel floats so far as regards the manner in which she has been constructed. Her outfit is new, and of the best material. She was built by Cornelius Delaney, and her sails and outfit are from the sail-loft of Harvey Wilson, in this city. She is commanded by Captain Leander Holt, an experienced sailor. - Detroit Free Press.
