Description
Full Text

The first sail vessel which arrived at Chicago from the lower lakes was the WILLINGTON, commanded by our good friend Capt. Judson. He sailed from this port with a cargo of coal for the Chicago Wood and Coal Co., and arrived there on the 5th instant, having run the gauntlet through the icebergs of the Straits of Mackinac with perfect success. The captain is one of the best pilots and experienced sailor upon the lakes, and is bound to "go ahead" when he knows he is right. He can now nail the broom to the truck along with that waving old Buck and Brecks banner which flaunted so saucily from the mastheads last summer. - Cleveland Plain Dealer.
