The Detroit Advertiser says: "The new barque MAGENTA, built at Green Bay, arrived from that port this afternoon, en-route for the West Indies, via New York. She is a fine looking craft, of 460 tons, being a full rigged barque, with cabins on deck, fore and aft, and may be termed a double decker. Her cargo consists of 120,000 staves (pipe and hhds.) She leaves again this evening, in tow of the tug BELDEN. May she have a safe and prosperous voyage."
