The schooner CLIFTON cleared yesterday for Richmond, Virginia. She is to load with lumber somewhere on the lake shore. She is one of the vessels purchased here this spring by a New York House, to be used in the Atlantic coasting trade.

      A NEW FEATURE IN OUR LAKE COMMERCE. - We observe at our docks the snug, staunch looking schooner CLIFTON, Capt. Mercer, of New York, taking in a cargo of Sycamore lumber for Richmond, Va. The cargo of this vessel is from the mill of Gay & Fordham, and is shipped direct, via the Lakes and St. Lawrence canals, at a much less cost than the usual expense of shipping via the Erie canal. - Sandusky Register.
