Full Text

It will be remembered that the tug WINSLOW was wrecked on the piers while attempting to enter this harbor during a severe storm last year. The engines were taken out of the wreck, and a new hull of 300 tons burthen has been built, in which they have been placed. The new vessel is named the WINSLOW, and is commanded by Capt. Kimball, an old and experienced lake navigator, and has been fitted up for towing and wrecking purposes. Her engines are 30 by 30. She has 1,000 ft. of the largest size chain, and 2 large hawsers, 10 and 12 inch, for towing and wrecking purposes.
She has recently towed 24 cribs of timber, containing 150,000 cubic feet, besides the traverse and timbers, from Pentangueshine to Port Maitland. This raft will load 14 Welland Canl vessels and the tons are equal to 238,000 bushels of wheat. This is her first work since the building of her new hull. She is owned by N.C. Winslow & Co. of Buffalo. - Cleveland Herald
