The CAROLINE WILLIAMS:- This large new tug, recently purchased at Buffalo by Manistee parties for $13,000, has arrived at her destination, and is already engaged in harbor towing. Her dimensions are: Length overall, 74 feet; breadth of beam, 15 feet 6 inches; depth of hold is 8 feet. It is the intention of her owners to station the WILLIAMS at Mackinac during the coming fall for wrecking purposes, and are now purchasing steam pumps and other wrecking outfit. The Milwaukee papers of yesterday, say that the large rotary steam pump belonging to the Home Insurance Co. and stationed at that port, has been bought for $4,000. The pump is one of the best upon the lakes and is capable of discharging sixty barrels of water per minute.
