Ship Building. - The Toledo Blade says: "Mr. Colborn of Oswego, has been in our city for several days, with the view of purchasing a suitable location on which to found a ship-yard, and commence the business of ship-building. We have often said that no other place on the lakes was so favorably located for the prosecution of this trade as Toledo. Our timber facilities are wonderful and will long remain.

"In other respects, too, we compare favorably with the other lake ports. But hitherto our port has not attracted capitalists in this line of business; but we hope that a beginning has been made. We understand that Mr. Colborn has closed a bargain with Messrs. Baldwin, Hall & Morris, for about 900 feet of water front, on the Point, lying above the Oliver House, and between it and the water and adjoining the railroad property.
