Robinson has rescinded the orders for the trusses ordered from the American Bridge Works of this city, and started for Buffalo today. Thus ends the career of a fine and popular steamer: was built of iron in 1862 by David Bell of Buffalo, lengthened and repaired in 1873, and originally cost about $125,000; her registered valuation was $82,000 and it is said that she was insured for $100,000. - Chicago Post and Mail, 3rd.
