We notice in the St. Joseph Ship Yard, owned by Capt. Geo. Hanson, a fine new vessel on the stocks, which he is building for James E. Stevens, Esq. Her dimensions are - Length of keel 84 feet; breadth of beam 22 feet; depth of hold 6 1/2 feet. She is intended expressly for the St. Joseph and Milwauke [sic] route, will be schooner-rigged, and will run in connection with the schooner Experiment, also owned by Mr. Stevens. Especial attention is being paid by Capt. Hanson, in her construction, to render her a fast sailer, while her other qualities will by no means be neglected. We are glad to note the revival of this branch of business in our place, and would call the attention of persons contemplating having any thing done in Capt. H.’s line, to his unequalled facilities for vessel-building, and also to the excellence of the timbe[r] of this section of country.
