NEW FOR OLD. - Messrs. Norris & Burt of this city are having the old steamer SULTANA altered into a Barque for the Saginaw lumber trade. She is to be called the CUMBERLAND. Her name cannot be changed without a special act of Congress, and if changed without proper authority it may cause some trouble to those doing it. The old steamer EMPIRE STATE is to be altered also into a Barque for the lumber trade.
