Along the Docks.
Capt. Timothy Donovan's new tug, the M.J. Cummings, was successfully and handsomely launched at 4:30 yesterday afternoon in the presence of a large crowd of persons, all of whom seemed to have the same wish to express - that the Cummings may be as successful as the worthy gentleman whose name she bears.
The Cummings is a handsome boat, built by the same man, "Brow" Morgan, after the same model and is of the same dimensions as the Eliza J. Redford, launched last week. Her dimensions are 65 feet over all; 14 feet 6 inches beam; 7 feet 9 inches depth of hold. she will be ready for business in about two weeks.
The wrecked and rotten hull of the old tug Fulton was towed outside and driven on the beach yesterday.
The tug C.P. Morey left at noon to-day for Sodus Point for the season. Her officers are: Fred. Pappa, captain; Peter Baltes, engineer; Michael Ulton, fireman.
