NEW VESSEL AT HURON, OHIO. -- The ancient glory of Huron as a shipbuilding point seems to have departed, although, occasionally a little is yet in that line. That excellent builder John Squires has, we learn, now on the stocks an A. 1. vessel, though not of the large class. She will carry 10,000 bushels; will be owned by Squires & Wilcox, and probably sailed by the latter. -- Post.
