TO SAIL SALT WATER.
The steamer John C. Howard, belonging to the George Hall Coal company, Ogdensburg, is to go to the Pacific Ocean. The boat has for two seasons held the record for big cargoes of lumber, having carried over two million feet. Negotiations were completed today for the sale of the boat to the Dollar Steamship company of San Francisco. The Hall company will deliver her to the purchaser at Montreal, within a few weeks. The boat will then be taken to the Atlantic coast, where she will be docked and strengthened before taking a cargo on her long voyage, around Cape Horn. She will then be put in the trans-Pacific trade.
