A long, low, dark looking schooner, of rather a suspicious character, was seen off in the Lake a few days since, and so much anxiety was manifested by some of our inhabitants respecting her, that the steamer Trowbridge went out to pay her a visit. On board was found our much esteemed fellow-citizen Capt. Welch, with his family, taking the world as it comes, without any provisions to keep nature jogging. The vessel proved to be a lumber craft, schooner rigged, built at Sheboyagan [Sheboygan] the past wintger, expressly for the Milwaukie Lumber trade. She had the frames of a couple of buildings to be erected here, which will be soon put together in a shape to let. The craft is to be called "The None Such," "The Queen of Sheboyagan," or else "The J. & L. Ward."
