FOR EUROPE. - Messrs. Cunningham & Shaw, of Liverpool, England, have purchased of L.F. & S. Burgess, at Cleveland, the new schooner HOWELL HOPPOCK, which they propose to freight with a cargo for Europe. The HOPPOCK arrived her yesterday afternoon, and is at present lying at the Detroit and Milwaukee dock, taking on a quantity of staves which will compose a part of her load, thence she proceeds to Chicago, where the balance will be completed with grain. She is in command of Captain D.N. Tucker, an experienced sailor and navigator, and well qualified to carry out so important a trust. - Detroit Free Press.
