Along the Docks
Another large fleet of grain vessels arrived in port last night.

The schooner E. W. Rathbun (Rathburn) lost her jibboom by fouling with the schooner John T. Mott, this morning. The latter was leaving port for Chicago.

One of the handsomest and best finished vessels which has visited our port this season is the new schooner Cheney Ames, which arrived last night with a cargo of grain from Toledo. The Ames was built at Youngstown by Peter Lamoree, of this city for W. H. Doyle, Cheney Ames, and John G. Doyle, and was launched October 17th. She is of good model and although smaller than the large canal vessels, has great carrying capacity. Her dimensions are Length 136 feet 2 inches; beam 26 feet; depth of hold, 10 feet 9 inches, with Custom House measurement of 298 tons. She has a cargo of 18,300 bushels of wheat and corn and her hold is not full. The Ames reflects much credit upon the skill and workmanship of Mr. Lamoree, for he has not only built a vessel with "lean" ends, graceful sheer, but a good carrier as well. The new schooner is commanded by Captain Thos. Dority, and an able and experienced seaman, who speaks in the highest terms of his new vessel, especially of the readiness with which she answers her helm.
