The schooner MONITOR. -- This is the name of a new and beautiful vessel that has made her first appearance in our harbor yesterday, fresh from the ways at Sheboygan. Her timbers are unusually heavy for a vessel of her size, bolted and fastened in a superior manner. She is rigged as a schooner, and in addition to the usual breadth of canvass for vessels of that class, she carries three square sails on her fore-mast. In coming up from Sheboygan, yesterday, she outsailed the barque SUNRISE, one of the very fastest of the new Cleveland vessels. The dimensions of the MONITOR are : Length 185 feet, breadth 28 9 inches, depth 11 feet 4 inches, burthen 422 tons, Custom House measurement. She was built by A.C. Stokes, of Sheboygan, and is owned by A.P. Lyman, an enterprising merchant of the same place. She is a credit to both.
      Capt. R.A. Long, formerly master of the LUCY RAAB, sails the MONITOR. Yesterday afternoon she took on board her first cargo, 17,000 bushels of wheat, from the La Crosse evevator. - - Milwaukee Sentinel.
