Shipbuilding. - There are now four vessels on the stocks in this city which will be ready for sea in time for the fall business.

Messrs. Lee & Lamoree are building a vessel at this year, up on the lake shore, which is designed for Lakes Erie and Ontario trade. She is 110 feet on deck, 103 ft. keel, 25 ft. 6 inches beam, 10 feet hold, and about 12,000 bu. capacity. No pains are being spared to make her a first class vessel.

George Goble is building a large, first class vessel which will probably carry nearly 18,000 bushels of wheat. She is as large as can get through the Welland Canal locks.

James A. Baker has a new vessel on the stocks, which will be launched in about six weeks. her keel is 128 feet, beam, 26 feet, and depth of hold, 11 ft. 10 inches.

Miller, Kitts & Moore will launch a new vessel from their yard in two or three weeks. She is a fine looking craft, and will carry about 14,000 bushels.

All of the above vessels, we believe, are offered for sale.
