TUG ROBERT ANDERSON. -- The new tug ROBERT ANDERSON passed up Tuesday evening with three vessels in tow. She was built at Cleveland for parties there, and is very highly spoken of. As she did not call here we are unprepared to say anything of her, but will do so at some future time. --- Detroit Free Press.
