The Tug FLORENCE, owned by Jacob Streibinger, capsized and sank at the mouth of the Cincinatti Slip, Cleveland, and it was supposed that her boiler being unfastened, had gone through the roof of her cabin. Chains were placed under her a few days ago, and with the aid of two barge lighters and a number of "Jack Screws", the work of raising her was commenced.It had been ascertained that the boiler was in proper position. The tug will soon be placed in drydock and repaired.
