"Yucatan" White has concluded not to change the name of the stm. D. BALLENTINE. He will reserve the name QUITO for something larger and better, should he see fit to increase his investment in vessel property hereafter. Capt. Ira B. Mansfield will bring out the reconstructed stm. D. BALLENTINE and continue in her for several trips. He will then resume command of the stm. BRITANNIC. The latter steamer will come out in command of Capt. Richard Call, who is to exchange places with Capt. Mansfield and take charge of the BALLENTINE later on.
