Description
Full Text

The barge EMPIRE, formerly the mammoth steamer of that name, is now on the passage down from Saginawto this port with a huge pile of lumber being no less than 1,500,000 ft. The barge ST. LAWRENCE arrived here 7 years ago with 1,500,000 ft. of lumber, which is the largest cargo of lumber that has arrived here before or since. In entering our port, however, the ST. LAWRENCE came in contact with the breakwater, and was broken in two, her first and last cargo as a barge.
