The Albatross is the name of a new fishing-tug which John Gregory, the eminent shipbuilder, has constructed at Doolittle & Olcott’s ship-yard, near Van Buren street bridge, and which will be launched in a few days. She is of a beautiful model, and excellently adapted for the business in which she is to embark. Her owners are Messrs. Schultz & Stahl, of this city. The following are her dimensions: 50 feet keel, 14 feet beam, 6½ feet hold.
