Another Vessel Chartered To Go to Europe from Chicago - We learned yesterday that the British Canadian barque Chieftain has been chartered by parties in this city to go to Europe and back, from this port, early next season. She will take out wheat and bring back salt or pig iron. The price agreed upon for the voyage is $15,000 - a penalty of $2,000 to be incurred in case of failure to carry out the contract. This is no doubt but one of the manyvessels that will leave this port for Liverpool next season. It no longer remains to be an experiment - it is fast approaching a regular business. It is but a very few years since it was a "nine days wonder" to see a Canadian vessel approach our city; and it will not be many years longer before Liverpool ships will grace our wharves as regularly as Canadian vessels now. We are but entering upon a dawn of a new era in the commercial history of Chicago. Let us hail it! [Chicago Press, Nov. 25th]
