Full Text

The new tug S.S. COE, built by Mr. Geo. Notter, of this city, arrived at Cleveland on Thursday last. The Celveland Herald says: The COE is one of the best modeled tugs ever in this harbor, and the hull is furnished with an eye to beauty as well as strength. Her cabin accommodations are very superior, and private excursion parties to the Islands or elsewhere, will find this beautiful little steamer just the thing. It is the intention of her owners to ply her in this harbor, and she certainly is a valuable acquisition to the tug interest of this port. Capt. Holbrook informs us that on the passage up from Buffalo she not only proved herself a splendid dea-going craft, but glided through the water like a "frightened pickerel." The gentleman whose name she bears need never be ashamed of this new and beautiful craft.
