- Full Text
The Chicago Tribune of Thursday says: "This noble craft (prop. PHIL SHERIDAN) a full description of which was published in these columns several days since, made this port yesterday morning, freighted with 4,596 barrels of salt from Saginaw. With a beautiful and symetrical model, the PHIL. SHERIDAN combines staunchness of hull and thoroughness of finish seldom united in a vessel of any character. SHe has a carrying capacity for 25,000 bushels of corn, and is in command of Capt. J.E. Keenan, a gentleman every way competent to fill this responsible position. The SHERIDAN is the property of Messrs. J.L. Hurd & Co., of Detroit.
