      The schr. EMORY FLETCHER was sold a few days since at Port Burwell by Capt. D. Jackson to Mr. Hick, for the sum of $800. The FLETCHER was built in 1831 at Fairport, and was called the BLACK HAWK, and is consequently 34 years old, the oldest craft about the lakes. As an effort to renew her age, latterly she has been called the ELIZABETH. She has been partially rebuilt on one or two occasions.
