The schr. PACIFIC which has just left Chicago for Europe is owned by her captain, John Ewart, and others, and is a staunch and entirely seaworthy craft. of average proportions, as it is impossible for the larger boats which ply our lakes to pass the Welland Canal. The dimensions are as follows: Keel 143 ft.; breadth of beam, 26 ft. 4 inches; depth of hold 12 ft.; and she is of 295 tons burden. She is valued at $25,000.

A LONG TRIP:-- The Coburg Star says; The schooner PACIFIC, since she left town a year ago, has traveled over considerable water, both fresh and salt. She first loaded brick at Belleville for Chicago; then bone dust for Cork, Ireland; from there to England, where she loaded coal for Russia; from there she went to Prussia, where she loaded railroad ties for Belfast. Nothing turning up at that port, she left for some port in England and loaded coal for the island of St. Castries, West Indies; from which she loaded sugar for the port of New York, where she arrived on the 22nd. of last month with everything safe. Captain Ewart arrived at home on Friday morning last, and appears to be enjoying good health, and none the worse for a long sea voyage. We learn that he wants to engage a crew of fresh sailors to work his vessel.
