BARQUE "E.B.MORGAN" ---This vessel has been undergoing a thorough overhauling this Spring, and cleared yesterday for her first trip this season. She has always borne the name of a strong, well-built vessel, but was a very heavy draft one having a standing keel, and consequently a dull sailer by the wind. Her keel has been cut off, reducing her draft one foot. She has had a new centre-board put in her, and her decks have been relaid. her timbers on examination, prove to be perfectly sound, and she was re-salted and otherwise put in first rate sailing trim. She has recently come into this district, and now goes into the Buffalo, Saginaw and Chicago trade, in command of Capt. John Riley, an experienced and competent master.
