THE BARK NEWSBOY. - This is the name of a new vessel of 22,000 bushels capacity, which arrived here from New Saginaw on Saturday, and took her first load of wheat from one of Angus Smith & Co's elevators yesterday. She was built for Messrs. Jesse Hoyt & Co., the owner of the SUNSHINE, JESSE HOYT, and several other fine vessels engaged exclusively in the wheat trade between this port and Buffalo. The NEWSBOY is built in the same substantial manner characteristic of nearly all the vessels that have come out this season, and for gracefulness and speed her model is unsurpassed by anything afloat on the lakes. Indeed in this respect, we think the GOLDEN FLEECE and SUNRISE, are about the only vessels that will compare favorably with her. - Milwaukee Sentinel.
