Goble & Macfarlane, boat builders, now have, at their yard at the foot of West 1st. Street, two new three-mast schooners, one about completed and ready to sail, and the other in so forward a state that she will probably be launched about the middle of May. These are the first three-mast schooners ever built in Oswego, the only crafts carrying that number ever built here before being barks and those some years ago. They are built of oak except the top timber, which is second growth chestnut. All the material is brought from Canada and the lake regoins in Central New York. The masts are pine and spruce. The expense of building is $27,000 each and they are intended to be, and doubtless are as good and large schooners as pass through the Welland Canal. Of these two schooners the one nearly completed is owned by Messrs. George Goble and Daniel Lyons, and is named the DANIEL LYONS. The new vessel that is still on the stocks is being built exactly on the pattern of the DANIEL LYONS. She is owned by Thos. S. Mott, and will be commanded by Samuel Moran, who last season commanded the HAVANA. She has not, of course, been named yet. - Oswego Times.
