NEW VESSEL.---Being in the vicinity of the ship-yard of messrs. Smith & Whitney yesterday, we took a hasty sketch of the fine vessel now being built by them for J. Holt, of New York, and which will probably be launched about the 25th. inst. It is to be somewhat larger dimensions than the splendid vessel which they launched last spring, being 156 feet in length on deck, with 29 feet 4 inch beam amidships, and depth of hold 11 feet 10 inches. She is to be three-masted, Brig rigged forward, and will carry 500 tons burthen. The enterprising builders have applications for building other vessels as soon as this can be got off the stocks. ----- Saginaw Enterprise.

We learn that the new Barque now building at Saginaw for J.R. Bentley & Co., of this city, and the mate of the JESSE HOYT, is to be named SUNSHINE, and will be launched on Tuesday next, fully rigged, and will commence loading immediately for Chicago, where she will take in corn for this city. Those who have seen her say she is a handsome craft of some 500 tons burthen.
