Schr. BLACKHAWK. - We learn that this vessel under the command of Capt. Green, has not been heard of since she left this port, some six weeks ago. The BLACKHAWK went on shore at the same time with the OUTWARD BOUND, was got off, in a day or two, sailed for Manistee, and has not since been heard from. -- Racine Adv.
