Phillips' Diving Boat (Propeller), 1 Oct 1853


Description
Full Text

We noticed Phillips' Patent Diving Boat on the Michigan Central Dock this morning, having been brought down by the steamer OCEAN. The owner of the boat intends making an attempt to reach the ATLANTIC, in a day or two with this new invention.

A SUB-MARINE PROPELLER. - We saw yesterday, says the Detroit Advertiser, at the Railroad Freight House, a curious looking structure of wood and iron, shaped something like a pear, only about twenty feet long, with a little propelling paddle wheel at one end, and an iron flanged steering paddle at the other. On the sides were small bull's eye windows with very thick glass. The machine, we are informed, if Phillips' Sub-marine Propeller, and came over by railroad from Michigan City, on her way to pay the ATLANTIC a visit. We know not whether to examine her previous to making new efforts to raise her, or merely to examine her legally whether she was hit by the OGDENSBURG on the larboard or Starboard side, which is a point which there is some question yet.
