A YANKEE CLIPPER 

Mr. Wm. Flynn, a prominent and popular resident of Heart’s Ease, Trinity Bay, arrived here in the schooner Nonpareil. Capt. Richard Seward, last night, and informs us that matters in that locality are looking bright. There was very little sickness there during the winter, and people are now preparing for their summer’s work. The Nonpareil is a new schooner, built by Jas. Percy, of Scilly Cove, during the winter, and is supposed to be the smartest of her kind ever launched in Trinity Bay. She is a regular Yankee clipper, and on her passage here beat everything afloat. Mr. Percy is in the front rank as a schooner-builder, and the HERALD congratulates him on his latest effort in marine architecture.
