Cleveland, Sept. 8th - The United States light-house tender, Columbine, is now on her long voyage to her station at Portland, Oregon. The Columbine is the second of the tenders built by the Globe works here. She will reach Tompkinsville, where she is to be formally delivered to the government about Sept. 20th. After a brief delay there she will set off for her trip around Cape Horn. Lieut. Commander West, Tompkinsville, took charge of the Columbine here on Monday, and, with a party, started for her station. She is almost an exact duplicate of the Lilac, which is now in service at Portland, Maine.
