SCHOONER METROPOLIS. -- The METROPOLIS is the name of a new and beautiful schooner from the yard of Peck & Masters. She is 126 feet in length, 28 feet breadth of beam, and 11 feet depth of hold, and measures 359 tons. Her carrying capacity is equal to 16,000 bushels of wheat. She is considered by her builders, one of the finest schooners ever put afloat in this city, and in saying so they do no disagreement to other crafts. The METROPOLIS was built for W. T. Richmond and Captain John Waters by the latter of whom she will be commanded and will run during the season between Buffalo and Chicago. -- Cleveland Plain dealer.
