      J. C. Gilchrist of the firm of Moore, Bartow & Gilchrist of Cleveland has purchased the steamer HIAWATHA from C. H. Lane of Buffalo for $62,500. He is also figuring on purchasing the HIAWATHA's consort, the MINNEHAHA, which is still ashore near Detour, where the boats were both stranded last fall. John Jacobs of Marquette has sold to Capt. Lime Woodruff of Sheffield, O., a third interest in the steamer OTEGO. Like interests in the OTEGO's consorts, MONTICELLO and MONTMORENCY, have been sold to Fred Woodruff, son of Capt. Lime Woodruff, and Capt Jones of Cleveland. The men purchasing interests in, the barges will also sail them, and the tow will be given employment in the Lake Superior Stone trade by Mr. Jacobs.
