THE SCHOONER MESSENGER. -- Buffalo Vessel for Europe. -- The schooner MESSENGER is now fitting out at this port for Europe. She is of very queer build, and curious construction. She is now loaded with staves. We shall publish her dimensions, construction, and probable mission, to-morrow. She would probably have passed unnoticed, had not an attachment been sued out against her by one of the hands. The case was to come off at Justice Himson's this afternoon. Josiah Cook is council for plaintiff. The owners of the MESSENGER bounded her foresail, and the vessel left this morning at 4 o'clock for Quebec via the Welland Canal. We shall hear of her again. We understand that her ostensible business is to carry a load of staves to Cadiz, Spain, and bring back freight to New Orleans ! Her owners reside in New York city. We are glad to notice that New York shipping men have found it much to their advantage to fit out vessels for foreign countries in the port of Buffalo - trading vessels especially.
