Oswego Palladium (Oswego, NY), July 18, 1857
- Full Text
The New Tug "Oswego." - The new steam tug Oswego, built in Philadelphia, and owned and commanded by Capt. J. Kimball, arrived in our harbor from
Philadelphia about 2 p.m. on the 4th, by way of the St. Lawrence, in 14 days. The Oswego is a staunch and beautiful craft in every respect, and is admired by
every judge of marine architecture. She measures 160 tons burthen and is the largest tug in our harbor. Her trip around from Philadelphia proved the power and
perfection of her engine, and the speed and sea worthiness of the tug, and she came out of the ordeal with honor and satisfaction.
Yesterday afternoon she made an excursion trip to Port Ontario with a party of invited gusts, who were delighted with her good qualities. She is designed to be
employed on the St. Clair Flats, and will leave for that destination in a few days.
