Description
Full Text

A new 3 masted vessel called the RED WING, said to be from Buffalo, passed up Wednesday evening in tow of the tug QUAYLE. In size she is about 600 tons, and apparently well fitted out. A vessel called the SANDUSKY, launched at Gibralter, and said to be of 1,000 tons burden, is now on her maiden voyage to the iron ore region. Her rig is that of a three masted schooner, well fitted out. It is the intenstion of the company who owns her to have her towed through the lakes, yet in the event of bad weather she will be prepared to take care of herself.
