ANOTHER NEW SCHOONER. — The ZADOCK PRATT is the name of another fine three-masted schooner just built by Messrs. Smith & Spencer, for Messrs. Peck & Smith, of this city. The ZADOCK PRATT is 133 feet keel; 26 feet 10 inches breadth of the beam; 10 feet 11 inches depth of hold, and registers 420 tons. She is to be commanded by Capt. Henry Ellsworth, in every way worthy of the craft. Our builders have turned out this season a large number of the very finest vessels, but we have seen none yet, superior to the ZADOCK PRATT. Success attends her.
