p.2 Low State of Water in Lake Erie - str. Buffalo aground near pier. [Buffalo Commercial]

Launch of the Passport - On Thursday last the Hon. John Hamilton's new iron steamboat was launched from the Marine Railway. She went off the ways in gallant style, amidst the cheers of a large concourse of spectators. On touching the water, a flag was hoisted displaying her future name, and an outlandish name it is for a steamboat. The Passport is intended for the river navigation, and has been taken to Prescott to receive her engine, furniture, etc. She is a beautiful model, and sits upon the water like a duck. Her length is 180 feet, breadth of beam 26 feet, and is expected to draw, when fully laden, no more than four feet. She will be commanded by Capt. Bowen, long and favorably known on these waters.
