      THE NEW PENSAUKEE.
      A Thorough Rebuild.
      The schooner PENSAUKEE, ashore some time ago, but rescued and taken to Manitowoc, was thoroughly rebuilt there, the owner, Mr. J.S. Dunham, laying out a great deal more money upon her even than the underwriters allowed. The rebuild was closely watched by the master and by Mr. Dunham in person, and the work was well done. That well-known authority, Captain Rounds, of the Aetna, inspected the vessel when completed, and gives her a rating of A 2. It is said that she is as good as new. From Manitowoc the PENSAUKEE went to Cheboygan and loaded lumber for Chicago, arriving here yesterday in the northeaster in fine shape.
