TOW BOAT SOLD. - The little side-wheel steam tug NILE, (says the Chicago Dem. Press,) which has been running on our river since May last, as a tow boat, was sold on Friday to Neeley & Howe, for $3,500. Her guards will be taken off, and she will be put in order to go down the canal tomorrow, to be employed in towing on the Illinois River. The NILE was built at Montville, Michigan, to run on the St. Joseph River, and is well adapted for her intended business, as she draws but fifteen inches of water.
