Full Text

The name of the steamer GLOBE, purchased not long ago by the Bessemer company, will be changed to JAMES B. EADS, thus honoring the eminent civil engineer, who first acquired fame from the construction of the St. Louis bridge across the Mississippi river, and later through the construction of the piers at the mouth of the Mississippi river, which were the first to ever hold the Mississippi bar.
