SHIP-BUILDING - We have the pleasure of noticing the progress and increase of this business, within this two or three years past - a number of very fine vessels have been built, some of which have been noted for their workmanship and swift sailing, and have been employed in the most special trades in England and elsewhere. In addition to the benefits derived by the country from this business, it is also a means of employment for many ingenious and industrious workmen, therefore, we hope it may be continued with success and profit to those who are engaged.
