      Housing in Tugs. - The work of housing in tugs, in order to place them in a more serviceable condition for the performance of outside work, has of late become quite general, and it is believed by many that the plan ere long will be universally adopted. Among others that are thus fitted out the tug KATE WILLIAMS has just had the work carried out, also the GEORGE H. BROCKWAY, while the tugs PARKER, DISPATCH, SAMSON, VULCAN, TAWAS and others were sometime since thus changed. It is claimed that the tugs built in this style work more successfully in heavy weather and that the vessel in numerous ways better protected.
