The VALLEY CITY Leaves East Tawas - East Tawas, September 22. - The tug MOORE left for Cleveland with the steamer VALLEY CITY in tow this afternoon. The VALLEY CITY is a little flat-bottomed river boat which formerly run on the Grand River, and her voyage down the lakes has been attended with difficulty. The tug MOORE will remain in Cleveland. She has been here two seasons, but business here was too poor to support her.

The sternwheeler VALLEY CITY which has been several weeks out from Grand Haven, passed down last evening and will reach her destination (Toledo) if she keeps on. She might be very useful on the Ohio River, but is quite out of place on these waters.
