The New Packet Barque Moneynick, of Charleston, S.C.
This vessel is the same register, 360 tons, as the Bounding Billow, but is of
a fuller model, designed to stow a larger cargo, and has a full poop deck,
extending to the mainmast. She is of the same model as the barque
Lamplighter, and has been built and equipped in the same style.
Designed expressly for a Boston and Charleston packet, she has great buoyancy,
and fine ends for sailing. She has been named after a place in Ireland, where
the forefathers of Jas. Adger, of Charleston, one of her owners, lived "long
time ago." Messrs. Mitchell & Rice, of Chelsea, built her; she is commanded by
Capt. Ephraim Smith, and will run in Lombard & Co.'s line of Charleston
packets. She is really a beautiful vessel, and well worth inspecting.
