Frankfort.---Friday's northeast gale caused the grain laden schooner H.TABER, LILLIE PRATT, BURT BARNES, MINNEHAHA, GEORGE WESCOTT and the old schooner HARRIET ROSS to run here for shelter. The HARRIET ROSS is credited with being one of Commodore Perry's war vessels that fought the battle of Lake Erie in 1814. How the story originated, it is hard to say. Her register in the report of the custom house shows that she was built at Buffalo in 1854, but built up from the bottom of the old ship TRENTON. The question is, where was the TRENTON built ?
