NEW SCHOONER. -- Capt. G. W. Jones, has brought out a schooner built by him the past winter at Charleston, intended to carry freight from Cleveland and other lake ports to new York City via the Erie Canal. The experiment may prove successful, as the expense of a re-shipment of freight at Buffalo and Albany will be saved. The new craft is called the GEORGE WATSON, measures 61 37-95 tons burthen, and is constructed with slip masts and keel.
