A SCHOONER FOR BOSTON. - The new schooner built by Lafrenere & Stephenson for Capt. Lovell, of Boston, will be launched to-morrow. She is of superior model and superior build, being fastened with composite spikes and tree-nails. She embraces in her structure all the improved plans of lake craft, and will add considerable to Lafrenere & Stephenson's reputation - a reputation already wide extended, having reached Boston and other ports on the Atlantic coast. The superiority of lake vessels to those built on the sea coast is now so generally acknowleged, that orderes will doubtless pour in upon our shipbuilders. - [Cleve. Plain Dealer, Monday.
