CONVERTED INTO A BARGE. - The propeller MAGNET, which plied for several years in connection with a line of steamers between Montreal and Chicago, has been dismantled of her engine and boiler, and will hereafter be towed as a barge in the lumber trade. She has served as a steamer for 18 years, was built at Cleveland by Luther Moses, was sold several years since to Montreal parties, and was first named the NEW ENGLAND. Not long since she met with an accident and sank in the Lachine Canal. She was recently sold to Kingston parties, and raised with the results above stated.
