On The Marine Railway. - The steamer Zimmerman, Capt. Milloy, was hauled out upon the Marine Railway of James A. Baker, Esq. , in this city, on Monday, in handsome style - This is the largest craft ever taken out here, and proves the capacity of the Railway under good management and skill. The Zimmerman is one of the finest modeled, furnished and finished steamers on the Lakes, and is as fleet as she is beautiful. She is 215 feet in length, is over 700 tons burthen, and has a very powerful and perfect engine. She is a little less than two years old, but has been running summer and winter during that time, and is brought here to be repaired and strengthened. She will undergo a thorough overhauling and painting, and is to be furnished with strong arches. It will require about ten days to complete the work upon her.
