The new Hand & Johnson tug is to be launched this evening. The boat is 76 feet long over all, 18 feet beam and 10½ feet depth. She has 22 x 24 single high pressure engine, built by Whitman, and the steel boiler, which is 8 x 14 feet, was manufactured by the lake Erie Works. The new boat is named CONNEAUT and will be added to Hand & Johnson's new fleet at that port.

The launch of the tug CONNEAUT took place last evening. The tug slid rapidly into the water, going over so far when she struck that she did not right, but filled and sank. The CONNEAUT will at once be pumped out.
