Description
Full Text

The barge Russell Dart lies in the lower end of the city, full of water. This craft has had a checkered career. Years ago she was built at Cleveland and named Russell Dart. She was afterward wrecked, raised and rebuilt. She was sold to a Canadian, who changed her name to Josephine. Again she was wrecked, and raised by Murphy, who took her in part payment of the wrecking bill. Mr. Murphy changed her name back to its original. In 1889 she was brought back to Detroit leaking, and Mr. Murphy laid her up, intending to repair her. However, she in some way ran on a spar, which went clear through her, and it is not likely that she will ever be repaired.
