A NEW SCHOONER. -- A new schooner called the THEODORE VOGES made her appearance in our harbor Friday morning. She was built at Black River, and is owned by Captain M. R. Moore, of Black river, and Mr. John Geisendorfer, of this city. Her dimensions are as follows: Length 103 feet keel, 110 feet over all; 24 feet 4 inches beam; 8 feet 4 inches depth of hold; has a capacity for about 9,000 bushels wheat, and cost about $12,000. Her model is an excellent one, indicating pretty quick sailing. She is furnished with wire rigging, and has all the modern improvements in her general outfit, which was furnished by N, Swain's Sons. It is the intention of the owner to keep her on Lake Erie. She has been constructed under the direct supervision of her owners, and is pronounced by good judges among the sailor men and the Insurance Underwriters, to be as staunch as wood and iron could make her. She will be commanded by Captain M. R. Moore, one of the owners. It is so seldom that a new vessel is seen in this port, that she was the object of much curiosity and admiration by vesselmen along the docks. Good luck to the "VOGES."
