Saugatuck, Mich., Oct. 24. -- Shortly after 4 o'clock Captain J.J. Hickman's new tug was launched from Martel's Yard, many persons witnessing the sliding. She slipped along nicely until she was nearly on the water, when she slipped off the ways and stuck. The ALICE PURDY broke a three-inch hawser in getting her off, but got her afloat all right. She has been named LORENA, and is a very trim looking craft of seventy-five feet over all, sixteen feet in the beam, and has a depth of hold of eight feet. Her outfit will be completed in Chicago where she will be taken before the close of the week, and will consist of a new steel boiler, and an engine eighteen inches square. She has been provided with a Buffalo Wheel of six feet. Captain Hickman says she is a better looking boat than his first one, the HATTIE FOX, and he is jubilant.
