We mentioned, a few days since, the launch of the schooner C. N. Johnson. Her dimensions are: Length of keel 138 feet 3 inches; 142 feet over all; beam 26 feet, and depth of hold 11 feet, and measures 207 feet from the end of her main to the end of her jib boom. She will carry 16,000 to 17,000 bush. corn, and cost $17,000. She is to run in the Lake Navigation Company's line, under the command of Capt. James Draper, formerly of the schooner Aerial. She is now taking on 5,000 bush malt for Chicago and will finish her cargo with lumber, at Saginaw. -- Buff. Com. Sat.
