An Old Tug Captain Dead.

The Chicago Post and Mail says: "Capt. Aaron Goodwin, formerly of this city, died in Cleveland Thursday of heart disease. He was about 60 years of age, and beloved by all who knew him, and was known from one end of the lakes to the other. He leaves a family in South Vineland, N.J., where his remains will be taken.

"His son, Rufus, left for Cleveland this morning. Capt. Goodwin introduced the first screw tug into Oswego 25 or 27 years ago." The Post and Mail is wrong in saying that the deceased introduced the first screw tug here. Peter P. Wright, now of Oswego Town, brought the first screw tug here in 1854 or '52, the little tug Schuyler. Captain Goodwin referred to above came her several years after with the tug Peter Smith, and after remaining some time went to Cleveland, where he lived several years.
