The Tug Fulton. - On invitation, this morning, we took a short "scoot" this morning upon the lake, on the new tug FULTON, a new candidate for favor in our harbor. The FULTON was built in Buffalo last summer, and is about as smart a thing of its size we have seen.
      She is fifty feet in length, draws about five feet of water, has a powerful engine, and is as graceful in the water as a swan. She is owned by Messrs., Wing & Brown, of this city. - Capt. Charles E. Wing; Engineer, W.T. Brown. During the prevalence of high water, the FULTON has been towing canal boats in the river, above Phoenix, where she has done a lively business. Hereafter she is ready for harbor business, and in the hands of her enterprising owners we shall be surprised if she does not become a favorite.
