West Bay City, Mich., Jan. 21.- The steamer OSSIFRAGE is rebuilding and being lengthened by F.W. Wheeler & Co. She is to have a new engine, 13 +, 20 and 37 x 24 inches, which is now being constructed at their shops. A new Worthington condenser will be used. It is worthy of note that the old OSSIFRAGE was one of the first boats on the lakes to have a Worthington condenser. The steamer MASSAUGA, owned by Mr. C. H. Woodruff, was the first, and immediately following was the steamer MARY of St. Clair river fame. The MASSASAUGA and OSSIFRAGE were non-condensing previous to this time but the steamer MARY had attached air pumps that had been giving a great deal of trouble . After the change she became noted for her speed and the accuracy of her running, making almost absolute time at her different landings.
