Messrs. Leatham & Smith, of Sturgis [sic] Bay, are preparing to put steam in the schooner Pewaukee, now lying at Manitowoc. They will utilize a 16 x 18 tug engine and boiler for the purpose. In their opinion this will provide sufficient power to drive the Pewaukee along at fully five miles per hour and this will allow her to move about in the harbor without assistance. It is not proposed to change the vessel's rig, and she will consequently carry her masts and full schooner canvass as heretofore.
