New Vessel. - The "Geraldine," a new three-masted schooner, named after a little daughter of E. F. Wilson, Esq., the owner of the vessel, made her appearance in our harbor yesterday morning. She was built at Wilson, Niagara Co., by Mr. Little, and is a specimen of marine architecture of which the builder and owner may well be proud.

She is strongly built, and no pains have been spared to make her a first class vessel, not only in construction but beauty of finish. Her cabin is large, elegantly fitted up, and has all the modern improvements. She is of 308 tons register, and will cary about 14,000 bushels of grain. She is commanded by Capt. R. Hall. Success to the "Geraldine."
