Lady Elgin (Steamboat), disabled machinery, 1 Oct 1859


Description
Full Text

The steamer LADY ELGIN, on her last trip, broke her cross head beam while in Lake Superior. She was towed into Marquette, and a new cross-head beam was manufactured for her there by welding car axles with a couple of blooms of iron, and a beam was produced which, for want of time, lacked finish, but which reflected great credit on the mechanics of Marquette. The boat was detained but 6 days, and arrived in port late last night. - Chicago Press.
