      The DAVID VANCE of Milwaukee, is now in this port for the first time. She has 3 masts and square rigged forward, being between a bark and a three-and-after. She has the same rig as the SCOTIA. She brought down 47,000 bu. wheat and is commanded by Capt. Vance. She is a first class vessel.

      The schr. VANCE towed out of Milwaukee harbor at 10:00 Saturday night and reached Lake Erie in the remarkable time of 2 days and 15 hours, or 36 hours all told. The feat, which has scarcely been excelled by a sail vessel on the lakes, was performed under canvas entirely, with the exception of towing through the rivers. We congratulate the owners of the beautiful craft, and her captain, Louis Vance, upon the laurels she has gained for them.
