NEW FOR OLD. -- Messrs. Norris & Burt of this city are having the old steamer SULTANA altered into a barque for the Sandusky lumber trade. She is to be called the CUMBERLAND. Her name cannot be changed without a special act of Congress, and if changed without proper authority it may cause some trouble to those doing it.
The old steamer EMPIRE STATE is to be altered into a barque for the lumber trade.
