The new tug VULCAN, Capt. J.P. Hodge, with a few invited guests was out yesterday afternoon on a pleasure trip to Wyandotte. His vessel, as has been heretofore represented, is a well constructed craft of superior strength and material, and well calculated for the purpose intended, viz, towing and wrecking purposes. Her finish throughout is very complete and with good taste, while her propelling power is all that need be required. The VULCAN is 140 ft. in length overall, 22 ft. beam, and 13 ft. depth of hold. Her cylinder is 28 by 36 and excellent finish. In wrecking emergencies there can be no doubt she will be found well adapted and with Capt. Hodges well known experience there will be no such word as fail under any and all circumstances.
