New Vessel - First Launch of the Season. - Mr. James A. Baker has a new vessel nearly completed at his ship yard, built the past winter, under the direction of his foreman, James Navagh - a most capital ship-wright by the way - which will be a real gem of the waters, when she is put afloat. She is rated by experienced masters and builders as of superior and beautiful model, and A No. 1, in all respects.
She is clipper built, and is to be rigged and fitted in the most complete manner. Her measurement is as follows: 110 feet keel, 125 feet on deck, 25 1/2 feet beam, 10 1/2 feet holed, and will carry about 13,000 bushels of grain through the Welland Canal.
She is built entirely of the best of oak, is double clamped, with bilge kelsons, square fastened, three ties of breast-hook and butt-bolted. The work upon her is all of extra finish, and no pains have been spared to give her extraordinary strength and beauty. Her cabin will bear the finish of a parlor, and is pleasant and commodious.
Taking all in all she will be hard to excel on the Lakes. She will be in readiness to launch about the middle of April, and will carry the flag of "Free Trade," and anti discrimination, the signal of commercial prosperity at Oswego, and defiance to the selfish machinations of Buffalo and all her coadjutors.
