      NEW CRAFT. -- We had the pleasure on Saturday to notice the arrival, from the foot of the Rapids, of two beautiful new schooners, both produced by Maumee and Perrysburgh mechanics and highly creditable to their skill and taste.
      That built in Perrysburgh is named ROBERT HOLLISTER, and is of the dimension following:
      Length 120 feet
      Breadth 26 feet
      Depth 10 feet
      The HOLLISTER is under the command of Capt. Keeler, with Witkinson for mate and trusty Perrysburgh lads for seamen, all of whom are of the right sort.
      The Maumee schooner ALVIN BRONSON is fully rigged and, as she lies at anchor in the harbor, presents as fine a specimen of the lake-schooner as could be desired.
      Her length is 118 feet
      Breadth 25 feet
      Depth 10 feet
      She is commanded by Capt. Gilmore. -- Toledo Blade.
