The schr. ANNA GROVER, a new vessel launched quite recently at Vermilion, Ohio, made her appearance at this port yesterday noon. She is 336 tons burthen, and we are not overreaching the mark by stating her as fine a model craft as has made her appearance here this season. Such in fact was the unanimous opinion of a number of our ship owners here. The GROVER is 147 ft. in length, beam 26 ft. 4 inches, and 11 ft. hold. Her rig is that of a fore-and-after, and her fitout entirely new, of the best material. She is strong and substantially constructed with excellent lines and a handsome spear. She was modeled by Birdsell of Black River, O., and built by Grover & Pelton, by whom she is owned. Capt. R. Pelton sails this fine craft, which is now on her first voyage, bound for Marquette, Lake Superior, for a cargo of iron ore. - Det. Post.
