STEAMER OSWEGO. - S.B. Grummond has purchased the hull of the steamer OSWEGO, lying at the ship yard, and will place therein the engine and boiler of the tug DISPATCH, which was burned last season. The OSWEGO was built at Philadelphia, 24 years ago, of live oak, and the hull is still in excellent condition. She has seen service on the lakes and rivers, and on the ocean, having been used as a despatch boat during the rebellion. She was purchased last fall by E.B. Ward, who removed the engine and boiler, and has now sold the remains to Mr. Grummond for $700. - Wyandotte Enterprise, 21st.
