Another New Vessel. - We noticed the frame of another new vessel going up in the shipyard of Mr. Jas. A. Baker in this city. This new craft is to be of the following dimensions: - length of keel 130 feet breadth of beam 25 1/2 feet; depth of hold 11 1/2 feet. She is put together in the most staunch and substantial manner, as the vessels constructed in this yard are noted for their superior staunchness and durability, of which the following vessels are substantial proofs, viz: Barque Danube built for Merrick & Co.; Schooner Syracuse for John Hall & Co.; Barque Great West for H.C. Wright, Esq. and Schooner Augusta, for Avery & Co. The work on this vessel is to be pushed forward with all the quality and experience which characterizes the establishment of Mr. Baker, and will be ready for launching early this fall.
