Along the Docks

The new schooner Star, launched from the yard at Mill Point, arrived in port yesterday afternoon. She is a trim looking craft and ought to sail well. Captain Bartley commands her.

A new schooner, the Reuben Doud, of Milwaukee, arrived in port this morning from Kingston on her maiden trip. The Doud was built in the interior of Wisconsin, on a small stream back of Oshkosh, where oak is plenty. She was commenced over a year ago, and of course is well seasoned.

The stream into which she a launched this spring was so shallow that a series of wing dams had to be built to drive her down to Oshkosh. She is rather an expensive vessel, the original contractor taking French leave with about $10,000 before the vessel was in frame. She is full canal size, and carries, to light, 23,000 bushels of wheat. She is commanded by Capt. William Vance, a good seaman, who is part owner. The Doud is one of the three mast right, substantially built, and looks as though she ought to pass through water without disturbing it much.

The schooner Elvina, Capt. Frank Maguire, arrived in port this morning from Milwaukee, having completed the round trip from this port in twenty-six days. The fast ones will have to keep their weather eye lifted for Captain Maguire. The Elvina is owned by Messrs. John Dunn and John E. Lee.

The little pleasure steamer John J. Morley of Sodus Point, arrived this morning for the purpose of being inspected by the lazy Custom House officials. She will return to Rochester and take on board a party of bankers, city officials, and gentlemen of leisure for a trip to the Thousand Islands. She is owned by a whole souled gentleman, J.H. Hopkins of Lyons, who gives care to the winds. Henry Byce, an experienced navigator will pilot the yacht around the lake.

The schooner Caroline Marsh, which left here Wednesday night with the wind dead ahead, is in port again this morning with a load of lumber from Port Hope.

The barge Ontario Queen has been sold to Captain Estes and hereafter will be in trade between Port Hope and Charlotte, carrying telegraph poles.
