NEW BARK. - We notice that a splendid new bark is being constructed at the ship-yard of F.N. Jones, in this city, and she will be launched as soon as the state of the creek permits, as her progress towards completion is being rapidly forwarded. She is a fine model of beauty and strength; her length of keel is 160 feet; breadth of beam 33 feet; depth of hold 13 feet, and registers 630 tons old measurement. She will have capacity for 27,000 bushels of wheat. She is owned by N.C. Winslow, Esq., and Capt. B.S. Wolvin, the latter will sail her; he was formerly captain of the AMERICAN UNION. The bark will be named after our well known citizen L.C. Woodruff. She will run between Buffalo and Chicago.
