The new schooner built at James A. Baker's yard by James Navagh, is to be launched this afternoon. This vessel is a complete model of beauty and strength, and i feel warranted in saying that she will rank with the best sailing craft upon the lakes. She is built of oak, is well fastened, and as a fast sailer she is not expected to be excelled. She has excellent spars, and her rigging throughout is well fitted up. This is the third vessel built by Mr. Navagh at this yard, all of which are pronounced to be first class by the best of judges.
