Full Text

We take the following item from the Chicago Tribune of Tuesday morning: "We notice the arrival on Sunday night of the new brig A. MITCHELL, of Milwaukee, from Green Bay. This vessel was built at Port Huron, on the St. Clair river, and is owned by N. Luddington & Co., of this city, lumber dealers. She is constructed of the best Michigan and Canadian white oak, and is put together in a strong and substantial manner. Her dimensions are as follows: Length on deck, 124 ft.; breadth 26 ft. 3 inches; depth of hold 9 ft. 8 inches; and measures about 300 tons. She is commanded by Capt. R.P. Fitzgerald. This is her first trip, in point of speed she held her own with some of the crack clippers.
