--This vessel, owned by Messrs. De Voss
& Co., which left Richmond
some time since with a cargo of tobacco, &c., and which was compelled, by stress of weather, to put into port for repair, was in Cork, Ireland
, on the 23d of February. She had a bad time in getting in, and it was found necessary to carry her into the dry-dock, where she would be furnished with a new stern post, a piece of new keel, and be caulked all over.
A letter from on board says: "The Irish rocks are very hard, at least the cracks the ship got makes me think so." The Pioneer would get away from Cork in about ten days, and sail for Liverpool
It will be remembered, also, that at last accounts the ship Virginia Dare
, which not long since sailed from this port, sprung a leak after leaving the Capes, and was compelled to put into St. George's, Bermuda
, to refit.
At this place part of the damaged cargo, consisting of 600 barrels of flour and 500 bags of wheat, was exposed to sale.
The Virginia Dare has, no doubt, long ere this, sailed from Bermuda en route
