Description
Full Text

The new schr. CONNEAUT, which was commissioned at Conneaut a few days since, measured 239.11 tons, and has just performed her first voyage between Cleveland and Buffalo, having on board 15,000 bu. wheat. She is commanded by Capt. O. Capron, of the above port. A peculiarity of this vessel is that she has been tinctured with a mixture of arsenic, limewater and salt, both in timbers and in planking. This feature, in connection with her mode of build, renders her different from any other vessel afloat.
