FIRST VESSEL FOR LIVERPOOL DIRECT -The fine new schooner Dean Richmond is chartered to take wheat to Liverpool direct, without transshipment, via the St. Lawrence, at 30c per bushel. This is but the commencement of direct shipments to Europe from this port. The advantage gained by rapid and uninterrupted communication with the grand markets of the old world, which the St. Lawrence route most unquestionably furnishes, has yet to be fully tested. We are satisfied that it will occupy the proper place in the public attention. The Richmond is a clipper built craft, built in Cleveland, and commanded by Capt. Pearce. Success to him and his new enterprise. May he have many imitators in his new extension of shipping enterprise.
