. . . . .
The tug W.G. FARGO, while in quest of a tow near the mouth of Detroit River on Tuesday evening, met with a serious disaster by the breaking of her cylinder head and other portions of her machinery. She was towed into Malden by a passing propeller, from which point, we understand, she is to be taken to Buffalo for repairs. She will doubtless be laid up for the balance of the season. -- Detroit Free Press.
