Summer Cloud (Bark), 1 Aug 1877

Full Text

The bark SUMMER CLOUD, after being out twenty eight days, having been detained by head winds, arrived at Queenstown, Ireland, on Saturday.
      The schooner CITY OF MANITOWOC, left Glasgow for Quebec on the 20 th ult., with a cargo of coal.
      The schooner MARY L. HIGGIE is now a month out from the English coast, and has not yet been heard from. She will undoubtedly encounter the westerly winds, and have a long trip back.

FURTHER OF THE SUMMER CLOUD. -- We are obliged to Captain David Dall, the owner, for a copy of an interesting letter from Captain W. F. Higgie, of the Bark SUMMER CLOUD, which has just arrived at Leith. It was written at Queenstown. If a charter for a southern port can be obtained, the SUMMER CLOUD will make the trip; otherwise she will lie still. The intention of Captain Dall is to bring the vessel back to the lakes early next spring. He may go over himself and return home aboard.
