Full Text

JOHN THURSBY is the name of a new fore-and-after schooner, owned by E.S.J. Bemis, which has just sailed for Chicago. She
was built this past winter and spring at Irving, by Messrs. Lepage, Martell & Co. Her dimesnions are 129 ft. keel, 141 over all; 26 ft. beam, and 11 ft. 4 inches hold, and registers 360 tons. Capt. Wm. Fitch sails her. This vessel rank A1 and is certainly one of the staunchest afloat. She sails on a trial of speed with the bark B.S. SHEPARD, between here and Bar Pt., and we expect to hear a good report on her. She is named after a favorite and long established rope manufacturing firm in New York.
