Quick Work

Starbuck & Gurley's furnance was burned on Thursday morning. On Thursday the fire was extinguished and immense quantities of rubbish, coal, castings, &c. were removed: Friday morning workmen began to erect a new framed building, Saturday evening the building, 80 by 40, was completely covered (with boards) and enclosed--Monday morning a blast was made in the furnace. One of the furnances was not materially injured, and patterns enough were saved to commence operations with. This is doing business in a hurry. Mr. Langdon is using great exertions to commence his business again, but it must be some weeks before he can build another steam engine, lathes &c. --Troy Budget, July 25


Steam Boat Pioneer.--This staunch little boat, which, it will [be] recollected, was beached at Grand River last fall, and supposed to be irreparably injured, has been again set afloat, and arrived here on Saturday night, from Black Rock. Her engine, we understand, is upon the high pressure plan, and is of great power.- -Michigan Herald.
