Genl. C. M. Reed is building a new tug for use in this harbor and has named it the "HARRISON," in honor of Mr. James Harrison, of Buffalo, N. Y. Capt. M. Magill, so well known to our lake men, has been selected to run this new tug, and from what we hear she will be a bully craft and will have a bully commander.

      The new tug J. C. HARRISON, built at Buffalo and owned by Chas. M. Reed, Esq., of this city, arrived at this port from Buffalo on Friday last. She is a neat, well arranged, trim-built craft, and combines both power and speed in her construction. We concur in the remark of a friend that her superior fit-out would warrant the supposition that she was intended more for the benefit of excursion parties than for ordinary tug purposes.
