The new fore and aft schooner C.P. WILLIAMS, building at Michigan City for Thomas Dyer of Chicago, and C.P. Williams of Stonington, Conn., whose name she bears, will be ready for launching on the 4th of July. She is 450 tons burthen, and as a specimen of naval architecture will compare with the best models that swim the lakes. She wil carry about 20,000 bushels of wheat, and cost in the vicinity of $20,000. The C.P. WILLIAMS is to be run between Chicago and Buffalo, and will be commanded by Capt. H. Dobson, of Chicago, an experienced ship master and one of the best pilots on our inland waters. - Chi. Dem. Press
