NEW TUG. -- A new tug , which has been named the JAMES BARR, made her appearance in our harbor yesterday. The BARR is a very neat craft, of the following dimensions: Length, 39 feet; breadth of beam, 10 feet; depth of hold, 5 feet. Her engine is a fine piece of machinery, manufactured by Nagle & Weed, of Buffalo, and was put up by Geo. Balch. The cylinder is 10 x 10. The hull was built at Maumee during the past winter, by James Carroll, and finished by James Barr, her owner and master. This tug is intended for light towing on the river and Swan Creek, and we should think she is well adapted for the business.
