The vessel is named REGULATOR and is of the following dimensions; length, 105 fr., beam 23 ft., hold 6 ft. 9 inches. Her tonnage, old measurement, is about 150 tons. The keel was laid about the middle of April last. She cost about $10,000. The tug is named the J.T. EDWARDS. They are both staunch and strong and a credit to Buffalo Mechanical skill.
