THE WILLIAM YOUNG. - Of the many new vessels we have had occasion to notice the present season of navigation, there is yet another to add to the list. The WILLIAM YOUNG is the name of a staunch wholesome looking craft built at Cleveland, and recently launched and fitted out at that port. She is spoken of as being one of the strongest built
vessels afloat, and of the larger class. She passed up late on Thursday night with a cargo of 600 tons of coal and iron. Owing to the lateness of the hour we were deprived of the opportunity of paying her a visit. She is owned, we understand, at Milwaukee, and sailed by Captain Clifford, a sailor of our own knowledge well posted in his duties. - Detroit Free Press.
