Schooner Wm. Sanderson. -- We paid a visit to this vessel, which has been thoroughly rebuilt by A. Miler & Co., this morning, and found her looking neat as a new top. Her masts and bow sprit are new and a portion of her deck. She also has new arches and ceiling, and her hold has been completely rebuilt. She is now deemed good for as much service as any new vessel, the timber put into her being of the best quality. Mr. E. Lefevre superintended the work which, among ship builders, will be sufficient guaranty that it had been well done. The Sanderson is sailed by Capt. S. A. Williams, an old experienced seaman, and is owned by Messrs. A. S. Page and Thomas Dobbie, and was rebuilt at a cost of $10,000, She is now loading for Chicago with 600 tons of Turk's Island salt for the N. T. Co., and will go into the grain trade. We wish her many a prosperous voyage.
