Full Text

The steamer PHILO PARSONS, at one time a favorite boat , plying between Detroit and Sandusky, has at length fallen into the hands of the United States marshal at Chicago, and is the be sold under the hammer. Her history is somewhat of an eventful one. She was built at Algonac by C. Hinman and was provided with an engine, low pressure, which had worn out two steamers on the river, viz., the JOHN OWEN and before her the LITTLE ERIE. Many will remember the excitement created during the Rebellion when seizure of the PARSONS in Lake Erie and afterwards her abandonment at Sandwich.
