ANOTHER NEW SCHOONER. -- Another large fore-and-aft schooner has just been launched by the Messrs. Jones, and will be ready for business in the spring, of about 350 tons burthen. She is called the ELIZA SMITH, a name well known on the lakes, and not unfamiliar to our business men on the docks. She will carry about 14,000 bushels of wheat, and is owned by Capt. Gil. Traverse, who is to sail her, and parties in Toledo.

CORRECTION. --- We were in error yesterday in regard to the name of Capt. Gil. Traverse's new schooner. She is called the SOPHIA SMITH. We regret the occurrence and owe Capt. Traverse and his vessel an apology.
