Description
Full Text

We paid a visit of inspection yesterday to the new scow-schr. MARY BIRCHHEAD, recently built at Oak Harbor. The dimensions of the craft we have ----; she will carry about 14,000 bu. grain, and now has a cargo of 80,000 red oak staves. The MARY BIRCHHEAD is the largest vessel of her description sailing into this port, and one of the staunchest ever built at this end of the lake. She is owned by P.H. Birchhead and C. Rose, and hails from this port. She was named after the wife of Mr. B. (source paper unreadable)
