The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Oswego Commercial Times (Oswego, NY), May 10, 1854

Full Text

The New Dredge Boat built at this port for the Government is completed, and we understand is about to be tested for delivery to the Agent of the Government, Col. Turnbull, who is now expected here daily, for the purpose. We also understand that the Dredge is to be taken to Little Sodus to be tried, and then go into service there, on the application of the people residing in that neighborhood.

They want a passage dredged into their Harbor for small craft, for the better accommodation of the hunters and fishermen of that region. If we apprehend rightly, some dredging is needed in Oswego harbor of rather more importance to the commercial interests of the City and the Lakes. At least it may be a subject worth the consideration of our citizens.
