NEW LUMBER BARGES. - The increased demand for more freight capacity for lumber has induced those engaged in carrying it to enter more largely into the traffic. The hull of the steamer FOREST QUEEN is undergoing a thorough rebuild, for the transportation of lumber, at an expense of some $4,000, and in a short time will be ready for commission. With the exception of new decks and some other slight repairs, she is in sound condition, and well adapted for carrying a good load. The hull of the steamer St. CLAIR is undergoing similar improvements, and is nearly ready for service. Capt. John Strachan and Capt. R.J. Hackett, already interested in this trade, are the movers in these matters. - Detroit Free Press, 17.
