Cleveland, June 23.
SEIZURE. -- The schooner NEW YORK was seized at Vermillion yesterday, by the Collector of Customs for this district, for several gross violations of the United States Revenue laws; Master and owner being foreigners -- for neglecting and refusing to surrender her papers on transfer of ownership to a foreigner -- for making false entry, and leaving port without a clearance, with intent to smuggle that part of her cargo not reported, into the United States at Vermillion, and for resisting an officer in the discharge of his duty.
      The schooner was brought into this port and laid up, to be disposed of under the United States revenue laws. The Collector and his deputy deserve credit for the prompt and efficient manner in which they are enforcing the Revenue laws. - - Cleveland Herald
