Capt. E.P. Dorr, general agent of the Aetna Insurance Co., of Hartford, has within a few days past sold the tug SALVOR to James McKay, of Tampa, Florida, who is going to run her from Tampa to Florida in the cattle trade. The SALVOR was built in Buffalo, in the fall of 1856, for a wrecker, and is one of the finest vessels afloat, having been very successful in the business for which she was built, very fast, very staunch and a splendid sea boat. She will give a good account of herself wherever she may go, and we are not afraid to have her compared with anything of her class or kind upon the seaboard. She leaves this port tomorrow morning, via the St. Lawrence to New York, to be coppered, under the command of Capt. S.M. Hall. We wish the vessel, her owner, and Captain Hall all success. - Buff. Cour., 26th
