Speaking of the new barge launched at Toledo Wednesday (6/22) afternoon for the Tonawanda Transportation Co., the Toledo Telgram says:
      "Capt. George Shaw, who is to command the new barge SELDEN E. MARVIN, is a thorough-going seaman, and is the right man in the right place. He was 10 years in the employ of the Anchor Line. The new barge is engaged for 4 trips between Frankfort and Tonawanda, to carry lumber. Afterwards she will go into the grain trade between Chicago and Buffalo, as consort to the prop. GRATWICK.
