Roderick Calkins has just finished for Messrs. L. Rawson & S. S. Coe the schooner MASSILLON measuring 139:01 feet on deck; 26:03 feet breadth of beam; 11:75 feet depth of hold; 397:52 Custon House tonnage. This vessel has been built under the supervision of Capt. B. A. Stannard who has, in his suggestions aimed at all the modern improvements in the way of strength. Great credit is due Mr. James S. Calkins, who, as foreman and master workman, has taken unprecedented pains in his work, which, for strength and neatness is fully equal to any vessel yet turned out of Cleveland. The MASSILLON is commanded by Capt. Wm. Randall, and has capacity for about 18,000 bushels of wheat. Her rig is three masts with top-sail and top-gallant sail forward. -- Cleveland Herald
