Description
Full Text

The schr. COL. COOK, Capt. Humphrey, cleared from this port this afternoon for Liverpool with a cargo of 15,000 bu. wheat and 5,000 ft. of lumber.
      This is the schooner which collided with the ill-fated LADY ELGIN last summer. She had her name changed from AUGUSTA to COL. COOK, by act of Congress, last February, and now goes forth to try a larger sea than Lake Michigan. We hope she may have a prosperous voyage, steer clear of all dangerous craft, and be sold out to good advantage on the other side of the salt pond. - Mil. News June 4.
