Full Text

The Tug "Glen Iris"--In our account of the sale of tug in yesterday's paper, we were partially in error. The tug was built by David Bell for Captain E. P. Dorr, J. W. Johnson and John Roffo who, as owners, sold the "Glen Iris" to Davis and Tisdall, of Whitehall, New York. She is to run on Lake Champlain during the coming navigation season. This is one of the swiftest and most powerful tugs here. Her hull is iron, and she is well and thoroughly built, and, if like other iron vessels now in use here, will last for half a century.
