p.2 The Cherokee - We understand that Capt. Gaskin has sold the bark Cherokee for about 3,000 pounds sterling, and that the purchasers are negotiating, or have contracted for 3 others, of like build and rig, but of larger tonnage, and a depth of hold increased by one foot. The Cherokee is to be employed in the trade with the coast of Africa, for which her handy rig, good sailing qualities, and light draught of water, seem to render her peculiarly suited.
