ANOTHER LAUNCH. -- The fine schooner D.O. DICKINSON, built by Capt. Jones for Mr. D. Newhall, of this city, was successfully launched yesterday afternoon. This is the fifth launch here this spring. Captain Jones begins immediately upon another vessel, of the same model and dimensions as the DICKINSON and for the same owner. The DICKINSON will be rigged with all despatch and ready for sea next week. She has already been taken up to load here with barley at 12 1/2 cents, and will carry about 15,000 bushels. The DICKENSON is 115 feet keel, 26 feet beam, and 16 1/2 feet hold. -- Milwaukee Sentinel

HANDSOME VESSEL - DISPATCH. -- The fine schooner D.O. DICKINSON, which was launched from Capt. Jones' ship-yard only a few days since, is now lying alongside Newhall's Warehouse, taking in a cargo of barley for Buffalo, at the same time that the riggers are busy bending her sails, and the carpenters and painters are at work on her hull. The DICKINSON is a beauty and no mistake, and if she sails as fast and carries as well as her looks promise, will be a vessel worth owning. She will be rigged, loaded and ready for sea by tonight, or tomorrow morning, and takes 15,000 bushels barley at one shilling freight. -- Milwaukee Sentinel.
