A fine staunch iron ore barge was launched at St. Clair on Saturday, where she was built by Simon Langell. She was named the D.M. WILSON and will probably register about 800 tons burthen, and is built expressly for the iron ore trade. She is 194 feet overall, 180 feet keel length; 32 feet beam and 13 feet depth of hold in the shoalest places. She has an engine 27 x 30 built by the Globe Works of Cleveland. It is expected that she will be ready for business in about two weeks.
