Description
Full Text

A very fine vessel named DAVID VANCE passed this way yesterday afternoon from Lake Michigan. She is the largest vessel that has arrived down the present season, if we except the JAMES COUCH, her length over all being 228 ft., beam 33 ft., depth of hold 14 ft. Her estimated carrying capacity is said to be 46,000 bu. wheat. She was built at Manitowoc, is three-and-aft rigged, carrying a double topsail. Her model was apparently faultless, so far as could be seen while passing.
