      THE BARK RAVENNA -- FURTHER PARTICULARS. -- We find the following in reference to the bark RAVENNA, reported ashore at Cape Henry, a day or two ago, in the New York Commercial of the 9th. inst:
      Baltimore, April 8. -- Capt. Nelson, who was sent down with a steam tug to the assistance of the bark RAVENNA, has returned to port. He said the bark lies three miles south of Cape Henry, inside of the breakers, her head on shore and the sea breaking over her. The tug could not get near her on account of the heavy swell. No persons were seen on board of her nor on the shore. The vessel will doubtless prove a total loss.
