Another New Vessel. The Joseph Grant is the name of a new and beautiful vessel which we notice in our harbor this morning. She was built at Olcott, by Mr. R. H. Rogers, who is one of the best an most successful shipbuilders on the lakes. She is constructed of the very best material, and will compare favorably with any vessel that hails from this port. Her length of keel is 132 ft., breadth of beam 26 ft., and depth of hold 12 ft. She is owned by L. A. G. B. Grant, of this city and is commanded by Martin Van Buren, not of political notoriety, but formerly master of the Buena Vista and Ruby, and one of the oldest navigators on the lakes.
