- Full Text
The side-wheel revenue cutter ANDY JOHNSON is on her last trip as a Government boat. She has been condemned and will be sold this summer. The JOHNSON is one of four revenue cutters built here in 1864. The others were the FESSENDEN, JOHN A. DIX and COMMODORE PERRY. The last named was built with a screw propeller on each side Instead of the regular paddle wheels. The DIX is still afloat, being in the excursion business at Chicago; the FESSENDEN has been rebuilt The PERRY was sold two years ago and became the PERIWINKLE, well known here in the excursion business. She was sold to Toledo parties last year. The United States "man-of-war" MICHIGAN is now the only old side-wheeler in the Government service on the lakes. She was built at Pittsburgh. She was shipped to the lakes in sections. She was the first iron boat on the lakes.
