Another New Schooner
A clear, handsomely modeled schooner, built with a view to beauty and speed, arrive in port yesterday from Henderson, where she was built. The new schooner, Jennie White, owned by L. Seaton, who has put quite a fleet afloat, although not of the "bruising" style, will still be quite a carrier for a vessel of her dimensions, which are: Length 138 feet, beam 26 feet, depth of hold 11 feet 4 inches, with Custom House measurement of 246 tons.
It is estimated that she will carry 17,000 bushels of wheat in Welland canal draught,and judging from her appearance, we should say she will do it. She is fitted and furnished with all the modern improvements, and taking all in all, is a neat, handy craft, that will, if appearance go for anything, lap on the swiftest. She is commanded by Captain J.M. White, of Henderson, a thorough and competent seaman. The rising tendency of downward freights lures her to the West, and she took her departure last night with salt for Chicago.
