Along the Docks.
Hon. A.C. Mattoon arrived here at 6:30 A.M. today with the engine and boiler of the steam barge Ellsworth from Stony Island. After a week's hard work with sixteen men under the eficient management of John E. Riley, the task of raising the heavy engine and boiler from a depth of thirty feet was accomplished.The hull is rotted and entirely worthless, having broken in two when partly raised. The boiler and engine are in remarkably good condition. It is understood to be the intention of Mr. Mattoon to build some sort of a large steam pleasure boat, using this boiler and engine.
Testimony is being taken by U.S. commissioner Getty in the action brought by Mr. Barney of Kingston, owner of the schooner Sweet Home, totally wrecked at this port last season, against the owners of the tug Morey, Messrs. Pappa & Cozzens, to recover the value of the vessel, $2,000.
