EXCURSION STEAMER "CRYSTAL" RELEASED.
      The old excursion steamer, CRYSTAL, which has been hanging on the spiles at the foot of Ferry Street for the past two years, was released, and yesterday towed to the Erie Basin, where she will be dismantled and her machinery taken out and sold. The sandsucker SANDY HOOK was used to get the CRYSTAL off, and three attempts were made before the Wrecking Master was successful. Many complaints have been made from time to time in regard to the CRYSTAL. She has been an eyesore for a long time, and furthermore her position made her a nuiscance and menace to the ferry boats, as ice floating down the river in the spring invariably lodged at herbow and blocked the entrance to the ferry-boats berth.
