THE DEAN RICHMOND - This vessel, which cleared at Chicago a short time ago, with a cargo of wheat for Liverpool, left this port yesterday afternoon for Quebec, in tow of the steam-tug John MacKenzie, on her way across the ocean. By persons competent to judge, the D.R. is thought to be "over-masted," while it is objected that her bowsprit has not sufficient elevation to clear the rolling seas of the Atlantic. The writer observed two ladies aboard: for their safety, and the safety of all concerned, we sincerely wish the Dean a speedy and safe voyage.
