How Oswego Vessels Wear. - The Detroit Free Press has the following: Old and partially worn out crafts which from year to year are transported from the lower lakes seem to never die. Trivial repairs, with a little care and attention, ensures them another lease on life. The schooner Hamilton, which stranded at Two Rivers, Lake Michigan, and was subsequently rescued, may justly be considered as one of the early period. She had been twenty-eight years in service, and originally belonged to the "Red Ball Line." She was built at Oswego by Crockett, and is said to be yet in a fair condition." Oswego still maintains her reputation for building the staunchest crafts floating on fresh water.
