Full Text

The bark VANGUARD, at present commanded by Capt. Wm. Jones, returned to this port yesterday morning from the Wellington Mines, C. W., where she took on a cargo of copper for Europe. We noticed, some days since, the fact that this vessel had been purchased by Cunningham & Shaw, of Liverpool, and had become a British bottom, as also the preparations being made for her to load and take her final departure on her European voyage. She has on board 318 tons of copper, and 21 thousand choice oak staves, the latter taken on at this port. An entire crew are to be shipped on board before leaving this point, from Captain down to the cook. She will doubtless leave here some time today. - Detroit Free Press.
