CHARTER OAK.---This craft which was run last year as a schooner, has been converted into a propeller, and will be ready to start out on a trial trip this evening. She is calculated for freight, and it is thought will prove a profitable investment to her owners. She is rated at about 184 tons, and is owned by A.R. Cobb, Capt. Charles Rogers and J. & P. Eberts.
