YANTIC COMING.
      The Sending Of This Big Cruiser To Lake Erie May Cause Trouble.
in sending a 900 ton cruiser, the YANTIC, to Lake Erie caused some talk in official circles, as it may be a violation of the treaty of Ghent. The purpose of sending up the cruiser is that she may be used for instruction purposes for the Michigan Naval Brigade. Some parties here would like to construe the action of the United States Government as a violation of the treaty of Ghent, but the Government does not appear to be very much worried over the matter.

      Washington, D. C. Oct. 6. - Secretary Long yesterday gave the necessary orders for the sailing from Boston of the YANTIC and her delivery to the State of Michigan for the use of the Naval Militia. The old ship will sail under her own steam sometime between the 12th and 15th instant. She will be under the command of Commander S. W. Moore, U. S. N., who will have with him a crew of forty sailors. Lieutenants Newberry and Lothrop, representing the State of Michigan, will sail with the YANTIC, and upon her arrival at Montreal will
formerly receive the ship from the hands of Commander Moore in behalf of the State.
      All of the alterations in the ship's trim necessary to secure her safe passage through the St. Lawrence canals will be made at Montreal at the expense of the Michigan authorities.
      Of the sailors aboard 10 will be placed aboard the United States ship MICHIGAN at Erie, six will be retained aboard the YANTIC permanently as ship keepers and the remainder of the crew will be shipped back to Boston from Montreal by rail.

      . . . . .

      The poor old gunboat YANTIC staggered along under a gale the other day when making for the St. Lawrence and her pumping apparatus got out of order. Then a derangement of another part of her machinery was discovered and she was forced to put about for Halifax, where she could not give the British flag a salute, her guns having been taken. How the Canadians can have the heart to show any fear of the YANTIC is beyond all efforts at guessing.
