NEW VESSEL. – A new schooner, the ADDA, was launched a few days since, near Detroit. The Tribune speaks of her in high terms, as a model craft. 

Detroit Free Press 
      August 25, 1859 #

Our marine column contains a remarkable and noteworthy arrival, all the way from Milwaukee. The schr. ADDA, Capt. Chase, was built at Milwaukee and was loaded at St. Joseph, (opposite Milwaukee.) She passed through Lake Michigan, the Straits of Mackinac, Lake Huron, St. Clair River, &c., and the Welland Canal, and the Lake route into the St. Lawrence River, and through the Gulf of St. Lawrence and Gut of Canso into the “Salt Pond” known as the Atlantic. 
      She left St. Joseph on the 28th of May, and reached Providence R. I., on the 12th of July, after a route of 8,200 miles. From New York to Charleston she made 800 miles. In all 4,000 miles. 
She would have reached an English port, had she made that course in the Gulf of St. Lawrence, in less time than was taken to reach Charleston. She is now taking a cargo of lumber for a South American port.

Charleston (S.C.) Courier, August 19.      #

The ADDA differs in many respects from our schooners of Atlantic make and will repay a critical examination from all nautical eyes. She may be seen at Kerr’s wharf.
