p.2 The New Steamer Grecian - The Inland Transportation Company's new iron steamer Grecian has now fairly taken her place in the line, having arrived here, on her way to Toronto and Hamilton, yesterday afternoon shortly after four o'clock, with flying colors, making admirable time. During her brief stay numbers of anxious sight-seers crowded her saloon to obtain a view of her internal finish, which is highly chaste and ornamental, and in good taste. The interior arrangements are good, and her state rooms, 43 in number, besides additional sleeping accommodation in the lower cabin, are light and airy, well ventilated and capacious. Her speed is said by passengers who arrived on her to be good, and her engines work admirably; and she seems to bid fair, as intended, to be the fastest boat of the line. Her exterior appearance is really fine. Her bow is sharp, and she looks narrower than she really is, owing to her extreme length. In fine, the Grecian is a model of architectural neatness and skill, and will no doubt be the pet steamer on these waters. She is commanded by Captain Clark Hamilton.
