SOLD. - The Chicago Tribune says that the propeller tug FRANKLIN, which arrived about a month ago from Buffalo, and has since been employed on the river as a tow boat, was purchased yesterday by Captain Edward Kelly, and Clarence Dyer, from Capt. J. Terrett, for $5,000. She is two years old, and is in prime condition. Capt. Kelly takes the command to-day, and will continue in the towing business, for which the FRANKLIN is so well adapted.
