Capt. P.P. Wright's New Steam Tug. - This new craft which has been built the past winter for Capt. Wright by Alderman Rogers, is now nearly completed and ready to launch, and will be consigned to her proper element at 4 o'clock this afternoon. She is one of the finest models of this specie of craft, and has been constructed of the best timber and in the most substantial manner. Her dimensions are: 65 feet keel, 84 feet deck, 16 feet beam, and 8 feet depth of hold. She is to be propelled by a screw wheel driven by a powerful double engine of two 17 inch cylinders, manufactured at the machine works of Talcott & Underhill in this city. As regards power and locomotion the new tug will be a fast institution, as her owner is a go-ahead man.
