VESSEL PURCHASED. -- Messrs. Rounds, Hudson & Ranney have purchased of parties residing at Milan, Ohio, the fine schooner OSPREY, 247 tons burthen, built at that place during last season. The price paid was $11,000. The OSPREY will be a valuable addition to our marine, and also to the fleet of the enterprising firm, which now consists of the brigs MECHANIC, COURTLAND and McBRIDE, and schooners NILE, MARY, OSPREY and NAUTILUS, the latter a new craft built at Buffalo during the past winter by Jones, of 306 tons burthen, 128 feet keel, and 26 feet beam, and spoken of in the highest terms by our Buffalo contemporaries as a specimen of naval architecture. -- Chicago Journal.
