THE ONTONAGON. -- This is the name of a splendid new schooner, built at Madison Dock for Messrs. L. P. Converse & Co. and E. Mills and Co. The ONTONAGON was built by Erastus Lockwood. Her length of deck is 106 feet - breadth of beam 24 feet 6 inches - depth of hold 9 feet 4 inches - tonnage about 250, She will be ready for business on the opening of navigation, under the command of Capt. Daniel Mitchell. Good judges say that the ONTONAGON is decidedly a pretty modelled craft, her owners are enterprising business men, and we wish them success. -- Painesville Tel.
