Full Text

The schr. GEORGE W. HOLT, Capt. Charles Hanscom, which arrived at this port last Saturday from Toledo, with a full cargo of black walnut lumber to John Weller, is the first of a large fleet of vessels to be sent by Messrs. Mixer & Smith, one of the most enterprising firms in Buffalo, N. Y. She is a fine schooner of 380 tons, built at the lakes and rates A1 with our insurance offices. She made the passage in 28 days, via the Welland Canal, St. Lawrence River and Quebec, with light head winds most of the time; and Capt. Hanscom thinks her able to compete with any of our Massachusetts built vessels as regards strength and speed. - Boston POst, 29th.
