The schooner H. F. MERRY, owned by B. F. Dwelle and others of Sandusky, was pulled out of the bank at Huron, O., last fall, and during the winter was cut in two and lengthened some twenty feet by J. F. Squier. She has been thoroughly rebuilt and converted into a three-and-after, and is now about as good as new.
