BRIG SHAKSPEARE.---This noble brig has been built during the past winter by Messrs. Quayle & Cody for the owners, Messrs. Richmond and Cermain. She rates 200 tons and is of the following dimensions: Length of keel--118 feet; breadth of beam, 25 feet; depth of hold, 9 and a half feet. She is to be under the command of Capt. Corlett and will rank among the first class of lake vessels. The SHAKSPEARE in model, strength and general excellence is not exceeded by any of the vessels turned out by our builders this season, and that is saying as much for her as any craft ----- Cleveland herald

FINE VESSELS.---Among the many fine vessels in port we notice three of the Diamond Line, belonging to Richmond & Co.--The SHAKSPEARE, Capt. Corlett, CAROLINE, Capt. Davis, and BUFFALO, Capt. Davison, which are splendid. They are brigs and were built at Cleveland the past winter---the first two by the well known builders Coady, Quayle & Co. They are on their first trip to this port and it seems too bad, with such vessels offering, to find freights ruling so low as to compel owners to run with barely paying prices. ---- Chicago Journal
