      The steam tug LADY FRANKLIN has been sold to Smith & Post of Oswego, for the sum of $7,000 cash, and takes her departure from here for that port this morning. She has been plying on the river since August last, is new and of great power, and will answer well for towing vessels in and out that harbor.
