The new vessel KENOSHA, 380 tons, Capt. W.M. Egan, built by Peck, Masters & Co., Ohio City, is prepared to leave for Chicago; as is the BLACK HAWK, 380 tons, Capt. W.A. Lamb, built by Stevens & Presley, Ohio City, for A. H. Barney. The latter vessel takes full cargo of coal, and will probably sail on Wednesday.

NEW VESSELS. -- It is frequently our pleasant duty about these times to notice new additions which usually prove ornaments to the marine of this port. The latest we have to notice are the schooner KENOSHA, a trim and beautiful craft of the capacity of about 18,000 bu, built by Peck, Masters & Co., for Col. B.S. Shepard of this city, commanded by Captain Egan, and the brig BLACK HAWK, built by same for Col. Shepard and ---- Barney, of Cleveland. The latter is not a very handsome vessel, but perhaps she has other qualities that may prove redeeming in part or wholli. -- Chicago Journal.
