      SCHOONER CHARLES WALL. - This new schooner, owned by the Winslows, of Buffalo, was launched at Cleveland, October 7th, from the yard of Ira Lafrinier, her designer and builder, and is now in this port on her maiden trip. Her dimensions are as follows; 188 feet keel; 200 feet over all; 26 feet beam, 13 feet 2 inches hold, and her capacity is 620 tons, new measurement. She has three masts, fore and aft rigged and spreads over 4,000 yards of square sail. The WALL is a splendid proof of the enterprise of her owners and of the skill of her builder, upon which she reflects the highest credit and distinction, and may justly be pronounced, everything considered, about the finest, as she is one of the most capacious vessels on the lake. Capt. Lloyd is her commander. - Chicago Times, 6th.
