Returning from the Ocean. - The schooner NARRAGANSETT, which five years since sailed from Cleveland, Ohio, with a cargo of petroleum for Europe, is now for the first time on her return trip to the lakes, having already arrived at the Welland Canal. During her absence she has traded between Cuba and United States ports, visited Mexico and various ports in the old world, and has realized for her owners a reasonable margin. On her return homeward she took on a cargo of coal at Philadelphia for Montreal and thence scrap iron for Cleveland. She is chartered for the ore trade for the remainder of the season. She was built at Cleveland in 1861, but during her absence has had a rebuild costing some $6,000. She is owned by Murphy & Hall, of Cleveland.

NOTE: After sailing the high seas for half a decade, NARRAGANSETT (US#18110, 317 t.) was nearly a total loss in a gale barely a week later near Hammond Bay, Michigan. She was rebuilt and lasted until sunk in a gale off Goderich, Ont. , Lake Huron, in 1901.
