NEW CLIPPER. - The Detroit Advertiser says:- Messrs. Van Sicklen & Catlin have just received from the hands of the builders, one of the handsomest and finest clipper schooners that we have clapped our eyes on for some time. She is named the WHITE CLOUD, of Detroit, and she will bear examination. The model of this schooner is very sharp forward, and rises as it reaches her bow. her spars and rigging are neat and trim, and well fitted, and without any appearance of being too heavy for the craft. The WHITE CLOUD is about 350 tons burthen, and will carry nearly 13,000 bushels of wheat. She will make a handsome addition to the fleet of clipper vessels that now sail from this port.
