Schooner Thornton. - This is the name of the new schooner which was launched a short time since - and which was made mention of at the time - from the yards of Messrs. Bidwell, Banta & Co. She is a fore-and-after, 400 tons burthen, and will carry 16,000 bushels of wheat. She is a beautiful model, strongly built and reflects much credit on her enterprising builders. She has been fitted up and furnished in fine style by E. K. Bruce, ship chandler, under the direction of Capt. J. M. Miller, who thoroughly understands the business. She is owned by Fitzhugh & C0., of Oswego. - Buff. Exp.
