George Goble's Ship Yard - Another New Vessel. - George Goble, the well known ship-bulder, has nearly completed a new schooner of the first class, and will launch her on Monday or Tuesday next. This vessel is intended to surpass anything ever constructed at this establishment hitherto. Her capacity is estimated at about 22,000 bushels, and she is built in the most thorough manner, with 3 1/2 inch outside planking and 5-inch inside, edge bolted.

Her dimensions are as follows: Length of keel, 136 feet; breadth of beam, 26 feet; depth of hold, 12 1/2 feet. The schooner, which is not yet named, is to be sailed by Capt. Perry, and is owned by Messrs. George Goble, D.G. Fort, I.L. Jenkins and Joseph Owen. She has been in process of construction since last November.

Besides the above, Mr. Goble launched on Thursday the schooner "J..C. Riggs," which has been rebuilt and enlarged some 40 tons. She has been rechristened, and now bears the name of her captain, "T. Martin." A large number of vessels are also undergoing repairs at Mr. Goble's yard, requiring a force of about one hundred hands.

The keel of another first-class schooner is to be laid as soon as the one now on the stocks can be got off.
