The Supposed Slaver
The Providence Journal says there is no doubt that the deserted schooner recently taken into Newport was a slave vessel. She is a splendid model, not over three years old, and pronounced by the pilots and boatmen of Newport as in their opinion one of the fastest vessels that ever came into that port. …. Officers are on the track of the owners of the vessel, and have hopes of bringing them to justice.
