Final Voyage


"The tug Mary Newton, owned by W.C. Bailey, of Green Bay, was burned to the water's edge and sunk in Red River on Saturday night last. When the fire, which was communicated from the cabin stove broke out, Capt. Asahel hart, engineer Wm. Toseland and the fireman were asleep in the cabin, and narrowly escaped with their lives, Toseland having his hair singed. The boat had become frozen in, and the crew were disconnecting her machinery preparatory to laying up."
