Description
Full Text

The Chicago Tribune says: Messrs. L.S. & T.F. Colburn, proprietors of several tug boats on the Chicago river, recently purchased the "DAY SPRING," a tug of only eight tons burthen, in Buffalo. An old lake captain immediately started with her for Chicago, and arrived here yesterday morning, after a passage of 23 days. The DAY SPRING is the smallest craft ever brought up the lakes. She encountered several gales and was often entirely submerged by the waves. The captain says he would not venture to take her back if the owners would fill her with green-backs, to be his on arrival in Buffalo. The DAY SPRING will be used on the Chicago River.
