NEW SCHOONERS. -- The beautiful new schooners TWIN SISTER and TWIN BROTHER, are in the river at the wharf of their enterprising owner, N.H. Gates. They are both built after the same model, painted and rigged alike, and look as neat as any schooners on the lakes. They were built by Messrs. Laffanier & Stevenson of this city. Capt. J.T. Morris will command the TWIN SISTER, and Capt. Charles Wilcox the TWIN BROTHER. The TWIN SISTER measures 274 tons, 123 feet 5.5 inches long, 24 feet 9.5 inches broad and 9 feet 8.5 inches depth. The TWIN BROTHER will vary but triflingly from the same measure. -- Ohio City Express
