ter f Tuf=carora." jiist finished in trio sshirp r
y;trds of the ' Trigs Shipbuilding Company,
'.'fit Richmond, for the ■final trial trip of
that vessel. The " Vessel lert Richmond
yesterday, and everything is . reported to
be In readiness for the trial spin of eight
hours at sen 'off Newport News. The. ma
chinery nnd general seaworthiness of the
Tuscarora are to be thoroughly' iosted
by the board, which has no reason to be
lieve thnt the vessel, which is the first
of Its kind built in Richmond, will- not
meet all ' requirements of the contract
Th« preliminary, or dock trial, of the
Tuf»Jirora was satisfactory- to the offi
cials of ihc revenue cotter service.
If the trial to-morrow proves that the
vessel may bo accepted, the Tuscarora !
will undergo a small : amount of work at
Richmond, nnd will then go to Curtis
'Hay, fifteen milos below Baltimore, where
the -vessel will be. lined', up for a voyage
to tho Great Lakes, on wlich x waters she
•will fiorvfi in the future. The armament
of the Tuscarora will consist tJfrapid
firo gunsi but these will not be placed
"aboard until 1 ho. vessel reaches its des
tination on the Great. I^akes. an interna
tional agreement with Great Britain pre
venting armwl vessels of either country
from traversing tho water between the
two countries. Tho vessel is of the. same
type as tho gunboat Petrel, of the navy,
md may seme time prove, to be a val
uable liale fighting machiuc. Incase of
war between this country and England,
the vessel would do duty right aloiig.
She has trij>lo- expansion engines, and
the most modern machinery. Her dis
placement, is TOO tons. She is ITS feet long
over all, and her beam is T.O feel, with
v mean drafl of fl feet, making hor adapt
ed to shallow waters ami to quick mov
fng in pursuit of .smugglers and others
violating '^5 laws of tlK* United States.
In the contratJt . for the Tuscarora the
cessel is spoken of as; steam propeller
No. 7, hu't'all tho new revenue cutters
in TQCQift years have been named for some
of the many Indian tnocs that roamed
•.his country years ago? The Algonquin
is one of the new vessels now in service,
and the Iroquois is anoflicr.'- The Tus
carora was contracted for on April I'O,

pletion of the vessel by July ". 19f>l. more

R-iiile the contractors are more than a
l-ear behind their contract nhu./will suffer
pome thereby, it is recognized that there
-are many extenuating circumstances that

The dismissal, by Secretary Shaw, of
Lorenzo G. Warficid, a $2,003 clerk In the

claimed that his offence is not such a
serious one. in view of the fact that the
circulars were not distributed, and that
he ought to have been reduced and not

done in a non-union office.
' This statement was denied as far as
Captain Lamb. was concerned. A dele

that the one job done for Captain Lamb
