Description
Full Text

The prop. CINCINNATI, of Oswego, which was stranded last fall near Point aux Barques, has been raised by the aid of Capt. A. Palmer's rotary steam pump, and towed to this port for repairs. The invention of this pump bids fair to become of immense advantage to owners of steam and sail vessels on the lakes. In this instance, it overcame a leak large enough to admit a man's body, and several lesser leaks, and raised the vessel which was lying in 8 feet of water, deeply imbedded in the sand, in about 7 hours after the pump commenced working. Capt. Palmer has located one of these pumps at this place, and has appointed J.L. Woolverton, ship builder, as agent.
