Messrs. Thomas Dunford and Frank Leighton have formed a co-partnership in the shipbuilding business and propose to operate at the yard where Mr. Dunford has been so long in business. The first job they will undertake will be the building of a fine large tug boat for Mr. George E. Brockway. They are busily engaged in getting out the timber now.

      The frames of Brockway's tug, now being built at Leighton and Dunford's yard, are all up. She is built on what is known as the "concave bottom" principle, and when done will be a beauty.

      LAUNCH. -- The tug built by the Messrs. Leighton and Dunford for Mr. G. E. Brockway, of this city, was launched at 1:20 P. M. today.

Her engine is to be in size 16-1/8 x 30" and she is to have two boilers 19 feet long and 6-1/2 feet shell.

      Mr. George E. Brockway has named his new tug boat the CRUSADER. This will, the navigators of the Great Lakes over, while the CRUSADER floats, have before them the remembrance of the great temperance crusade that has swept over this country.
