      The steambarge launched yesterday at Marine City is named the GEORGE FARWELL. The boat had to drop a distance of 5 feet after leaving the ways and was nearly thrown over in doing so, but quickly righted herself and floated gallantly in the element which is to be her future home. A crowd of some 500 saw the launch.
