All Right. - The tug J. H. Bloore has been entirely refitted and made over, and yesterday she made her appearance. The new engine and boiler are from the Vulcan Foundry of Morris, Smith & King, and are of the best material and most approved workmanship.

In the afternoon she took a number of gentlemen a few miles upon the billows, and it was remarked by all that her machinery worked finely. She is under the perfect control of her wheel, and only requires her length in which space to turn around. The Bloore is owned by Morgan Wheeler, an energetic young man, and an obliging friend, and to whom we wish abundant success.
