Detroit River Matters. Special Correspondence to the Marine Review
Detroit, Mich., Sept., 25 -The ARMOUR will probably be ready to be put into the water in a week. Her starboard bow from the stem back for 10 frames is all new from the keel up. The only other new material in her bottom are a few short streaks of planking under her counters; her cabins are rebuilt and machinery is being overhauled and brightened up. She is being entirely recaulked and this work is about half completed. The big ice crusher ST. IGNACE is lying at the same dock. Presume she will take the ARMOUR's place.
