CONVERTED INTO A BARGE - The propeller MAGNET, which plied for several years in connection with a line of steamers between Montreal and Chicago, has been dismantled of her engine and will hereafter be towed as a barge in the lumber trade. She has served as a steamer for eighteen years, was built at Cleveland by Luther Moses, was sold several years since to Montreal parties and was first named New England. Not long since she met with an accident and sunk in the Lachine Canal. She was recently sold to Kingston parties and raised with the result above stated.
