The Cleveland Herald of the 19th says: "We saw yesterday in the river the new barque WILLIAM STURGES, 365 tons burden, built for Handy, Warner & Co., by those enterprising and capable shipwrights, Lafrinier & Stevenson, and named in honor of the Zanesville banker. The dimensions are 137(k)x 25 1/2 x 11 ft. The vessel is intended for the Cleveland and Ogdensburg, or the Chicago and Buffalo trade, and has capacity for 4,000 bb;s. of flour. Her model is a beautiful one, and she promises to be a clipper.
