LAKE SHIPPING FOR LIVERPOOL.
The Detroit Advertiser states that Mr. Bissell, a vessel owner and commission merchant of that city, is making arrangements to send the schooner COL. COOK to Liverpool this season, with a cargo of staves. The COOK is a finely modeled fore-and-after of 328 tons capacity, built three or four years ago on the St. Clair River. Mr. Bissell has secured a cargo of staves on the line of the Detroit and Milwaukee Railway, and the COOK will load at an early day.

The schooner COL. COOK took out her clearance papers yesterday for Liverpool, and was to get away last night. She is loaded with 70,000 West India staves taken on at New Baltimore, and 10,000 ft. black walnut lumber taken on at the depot of the Detroit and Milwaukee Railway. She is owned in this city, and was launched at Newport in 1855, registering 328 tons. She will be commanded by Capt. S.M. Hall, and expected to return in August, when she will immediately go out again if she is successful in this first trip.
