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.
