The steamer FAYETTE has been sold to a company of which Capt. James Sanford of Muskegon, Mich., is manager. The vessel is now at Muskegon being rebuilt and will be fitted with new keelsons, 3,000 feet of new deck, new boiler house and cabins, six new deck beams, a new steeple compound engine with cylinders 18 and 36 inches in diameter and 28 inches stroke, and a new water bottom. The vessel will probably be renamed the MATHEW WILSON.
