Marco Polo (Schooner), 23 Mar 1855
- Full Text
First Arrivals. - We had two arrivals of sail vessels yesterday, the first of the season. The first was the schooner CAROLINE, Capt. Ewart, from Coburg, with 1,330 barrels of flour and 303 bags of peas, assigned to the Canadian house of R.S. Perry. The CAROLINE was the last to arrive and the last to leave this port last fall, and the first to arrive this spring, showing the enterprise of the house.
The second was the new fast schooner MARCO POLO, Capt. Jackson, from Toronto, with 2,000 barrels of flour, consigned to Messrs. Clemow & Bloore, another enterprising Canadian house of our city. These two houses are entitled to the credit of leading off in the field of commerce this season. They are both composed of young, spirited and enterprising men. Long may they wave. We should be glad to see many other agencies here from our Canada neighbors. The ST. NICHOLAS reached Toronto yesterday, having had a fine trip. She left here Wednesday morning.
