Description
Full Text

A TUG ON FIRE:- The tug ADA, employed by the parties in the Work of improvement in the St. Clair Flats, took fire some time Friday night while the crew were all asleep on board, and narrowly escaped destruction, but for the timely arrival down of the propeller, the
EMPIRE STATE, which aroused the sleepers to a sense of their danger, without a doubt not a soul would have been saved to have told the sad tale. By superhuman exertions, however, they were barely enabled to extinguish the flames and thus save themselves from a horrible
death.
