NEW VESSEL AT HURON, OHIO. -- The ancient glory of Huron as a ship-building point seems to have departed, although occasionally a little is yet done in that line. That excellent builder, John Squires, has , we learn, now on the stocks an A 1 vessel, though not of the large class. She will carry 10,000 bushels; will be owned by Squires & Wilcox, and probably sailed by the latter. --- Detroit Post
