NEW VESSEL. -- Stevens & Presley have just completed, at the ship yard, a new fore and after schooner for Hubby, Hughes & Co., which, for strength and workmanship, has not been surpassed this season in the craft built at our yards. She is called the CUYAHOGA, and is to be sailed by Capt. Kendrick, of the west side, formerly first mate of the bark L.M. HUBBY. Her dimensions are -- keel 120 feet, beam 26 feet, hold 11 feet, tonnage 330. She is completely rigged and sails bent, and will be ready to sail as soon as launched. She is destined for the Upper Lake trade, and has capacity for 15,000 bushels of wheat. She cost $13,500. This is the third vessel built by Stevens & Presley this season. They have contracted and will immediately lay the keels for two more large schooners for Messrs. Hubby, Hughes & Co., of 380 tons capacity, to cost about $16,000 each. -- Cleveland Plain Dealer.
