Off For The South . - The steam barge ELLSWORTH left yesterday afternoon with a load of barley for New York, and after discharging her cargo there, will proceed to Norfolk, Virginia, where she will be engaged during the winter carrying grain from the ports of North Carolina. She is well adapted to the coasting trade, being of light draft, and can pass through the Dismal Swamp Canal without let or hindrances. Mr. E. A. Mattoon accompanies the craft and will remain with her during the winter. We wish the ELLSWORTH success in her new field of labor and that she may return in the spring ready for service on the lakes.
