THE MISSIONARY SHIP. - The diminutive vessel in which Capt. Bundy proposed to cruise about the lakes in his labors to Christianize sailors, is about ready and will be dedicated and launched within a day or two. The hull is that of a large life-boat formerly known as the "Little Western." It is well put together and is very beautiful. Capt. Bundy has had the little craft thoroughly overhauled, and put in the best possible condition. She carries two masts. The hull is tastefully painted, the color being that of lead. Three persons will accompany the good captain in his new mission, and every one will wish them success and safety.

Capt. Bundy is a faithful Master, and beside, is an excellent navigator, so that every prospect pleases. - Inter-Ocean
