TUG DOLE. -- The new tug T.D. DOLE has arrived in these waters. She was built at Marine City, St. Clair River by D.M. Dole for her owner, Thomas Bury, Esq., of Sombry, C. W., and is a beautiful model. her length of keel is 100 feet by 17 feet beam. Her engine was built at the Vulcan Iron Works, Buffalo. Her cylinder is 24 inches, and her machinery works in perfect order. She left Buffalo on the 3d, running to Bar Point in 21 hours and 35 minutes. At this place she took a schooner of 150 tons burthen in tow and beat propeller EVERGREEN CITY about a quarter of a mile per hour up the river. It will thus be seen, that in addition to a beautiful model and perfect working machinery, she is capable of making good time. -- Detroit Free Press.
