Quick Work. - The barque Indiana, launched last Monday from the ship-yard of G.S. Weeks, has been built in the short space of forty-five days, and is the largest and best constructed vessel ever built at this port, which, by the way, turns out some of the finest craft on the western lakes. Messrs. Ames, the owners, are loading the Indiana with railroad iron for Toledo, and expect to realize the sum of $1,500 from her first trip. This is the way our shipping merchants are doing business. The commerce of Oswego is rapidly increasing, notwithstanding the various obstacles which impeded its resist less, onward progress.
