Manitowoc, May 10. -- The new barge A. A. CARPENTER, of the Menominee Barge Line Company, cleared from here today, for Menominee, in tow of the tug MENOMINEE RIVER, with over 200,000 brick on deck and nothing in her hold. It is the belief of people generally that she will capsize before reaching her destination. Her cargo weighs about 600 tons, and to place that weight on the deck of a new vessel, whose bottom is dry and light, with nothing below, is considered by everyone as the act of a lunitic.
