The new vessel which has been in course of construction at Manitowoc during the past fall and winter, for Mr. James Richards of that place, is about completed, and will probably be launched on Saturday of this week. We are informed by parties who have recently visited her, that she is in every respect a first class vessel, possessing a very fine model and great strength. Her lines are easy and graceful, and her run is excellent; in fact, she is in every respect the finest vessel in the Manitowoc fleet.
Her dimensions are as follows: length of keel, 135 ft.; breadth of beam, 28 ft.; depth of hold, 10 ft., proportions which will render her valuable for either the grain or lumber trade. She will be bark rigged, and named S.A. WOOD, Capt. Jos. Edwards, of Manitowoc, a gentleman of great experience as a sailor, and elsewhere, has been selected to command her, Mr. Richards and Capt. Edwards have our best wishes for the success of the new
vessel. - Milwaukee Sentinel.
