The CHAMPION is the name of a large new schooner added to the Milwaukee fleet this season. She will be down with 8,000 bushels wheat and a host of other "traps" from that region.

The MIlwaukee ship builders are gaining much credit by the very workmanlike manner in which they are turning out vessels. The new schooner CHAMPION, now in port, is a fair specimen of their handiwork, and is said to be a good sailor. She is of the largest class, too, 205 tons.
      Another new schooner of the same size, called the UNCLE SAM, is soon to be launched from the same place.
