Description
Full Text

A new barge has been constructed from the remains of the prop. KENOSHA, which unfortunately, was partially destroyed by fire on the river St. Clair last season. The craft is of monster proportions, and capable of carrying upwards of 230 cords of wood. She lies at present at Campbell & Owen's shipyard. What trade or route she is to be engaged on we have not yet learned. She retains her former name of KENOSHA. - Detroit Free Press

The hulls of the barge KENOSHA and tug SEYLE, now sunk at Bay City, are to be raised and burned at no distant day.
