Toledo Commercial: -- "A new schooner put in an appearance at Toledo yesterday, and inquiry revealed the fact that it was its maiden trip. It was the PRUSSIA, and came to light from Kingston. It is a three mast top-sail schooner or barkantine with a hold 14 feet deep, one foot deeper than the average boat that puts in here. There is no paint on her at all, with the exception of her bulwarks, but her hull is oiled oak and of a very pretty appearance. She is owned by Calvin Breck, of Garden Island, and is sailed by Capt. Donnelly. It is said that she will be sent to the West Indies the coming winter."
