Full Text

A three masted vessel of a novel construction has lately been built in Massachusetts. She is rigged fore-and-aft fashion, like a common [schr.], and her stranding rigging is all of Iron, [ ] with rope yarn--the shrouds are continuous [bars?], and the ratlines are strips of wood--the [stays] are composed of links about a yard in length.--This vessel is expected to sail fast, and she [wor]ks very well. The rigging, moreover, is said to be much higher than [hempen] cordage-- but this part of the account is not demonstrated in the paper which contains the notice of this [manu?]script.]
