FROM ASHTABULA TO BOSTON. -- The Ashtabula Sentinel says: "The schooner ADRIATIC, Capt. J.B. Hall, has been loaded with a cargo of lumber and staves, by C. Bowers, consigned to Messrs. Beerse & Co., Boston, and will sail in the course of the present week. The ADRIATIC has been refitted for this new service by raising her bulwarks, and adding to her strength by hanging knees below decks, providing her with new sails and running rigging, and a fresh coat of paint. Her first officer is James Jeffords.
A couple of our village young men, George Robertson and Charles Griswold, have shipped as hands. The ADRIATIC is a model lake craft, and has few equals in sailing qualities. She will be in every respect a representative of Ashtabula, having been built, owned, commanded, manned and loaded by Ashtabula men and materials. It is the intention of her owners to run her in the coasting trade upon the Atlantic during the fall, and upon the Gulf of Mexico during the winter.
