The Corinthian In A Hurricane [Witness]

New Tug Boat - This afternoon we witnessed the trial trip of the new tug Edmund, built by Mr. D.J. Ainslie, of Kingston, for J.P. Tett & Bro., Bedford Mills. It is apparently very strongly built, and well adapted for the work intended by the owners. The engine was built by D. McEwen and Son, is of forty horse power upright, with rock valves and automatic cut off. The boiler is the Fitzgibbon's patent, of which Messrs. McEwan have the sole right for the Dominion. It is nine feet long, 4 feet 2 inches in diameter, with 154 2 inch tubes, giving a heating surface of 600 feet, which is claimed to be more than can be accomplished by any other patent. The engine seems to work well, and the boiler to give any amount of steam.
