      The bark BUTCHER BOY has been thoroughly rebuilt at this port, and is about ready to put to sea. She is said to be as good as a new vessel. When wrecked she was abandoned to the underwriters, and Messrs. Smith & Davis have had charge of her reconstruction.

      The BUTCHER BOY was out last evening for the first time since her reconstruction, and attracted considerable attention from her fine appearance. She is now a 3-master and schooner-rigged. Her upper works were all new, including the masts and outfit. Messrs. Vosburgh & Baker furnished the outfit. She is owned by the following gentlemen; E.B. Smith, Capt. Thomas Crosby and Messrs. Anderson & Harnett, by whom she was raised and put in her present serviceable condition.
