Quick time. - The schooner "Henry Fitzhugh," Capt. Becker, arrived here Saturday, with 17,700 bushels of wheat, from Milwaukee, having made the round trip in twenty three days. We call this pretty fast sailing and hard to beat. The "Henry Fitzhugh" was built by Messrs. Goble & Macfarlane, our wel known shipbuilders, for Thomas Mott Esq., of this city, and was launched and went into trade last spring. She is a noble vessel. We learn that Goble & Macfarlane are building two more schooners for Mr. Mott, one being already on the stocks, while the keel of the other will soon be laid.
