Full Text

The Schooner "Barbarian." - We took occasion yesterday to view this new vessel, built by A. Miller & Co. , and owned by the enterprising house of Smith & Post of this city. She is really a staunch and noble craft, arched and extra fastened, and ranks at the top of the column of vessels of her class. She is calculated to carry 17,500 bushels of wheat through the canal; she measures 236 feet keel, 15 feet, 8 inches beam, and 11 feet 2 inches hold, and will stow cargo at the extreme stem and stern. She is to be commanded by Capt. George Clement, an able and experienced sailor, and will sail next Wednesday with a cargo of planed lumber for Milwaukee. her cost is about $16,500.
