A new Schooner and A Quick Passage
The new three masted schooner THOMAS H. HOWLAND, of Manitowoc, arrived in port yesterday afternoon from Milwaukee, with 19,000 bushels of wheat, which she brought through the canal without lightering, making the passage down in extraordinary quick time of seven days and fourteen hours, the best time made this season.
The HOWLAND was built at Manitowoc, and is owned by S. P. Johnson, of that place. She is of handsome model, similar to the CHRISTINE NILSSON, of the largest size that can come through the Welland Canal, and staunch and well
Her commander is Captain William Griffin of this city, an active smart young man and good sailor, who was educated in the progressive school, where it is taught: "that the place for a vessel when she is ready for sea is outside." May this be but one of a series of quick trips by the HOWLAND and her live "skipper."
