p.2 New Steamer - Mr. Geo. Chaffey, of Kingston, has favored us with a beautiful picture of a beautiful boat which he is now building for Messrs. Folger & Hanley, to be called the Geneva. She is a screw steamer, of handsome model, gracefully proportioned, arranged in the best manner for the comfort of passengers, and calculated to run 12 miles an hour, or faster. We believe she is intended for the Kingston and Cape Vincent route, but it is more than probable that, during the excursion season, she will be in constant demand for pleasure trips. She is to cost from $12,000 to $15,000, and will be a credit not only to those who designed and built her, but also to the enterprising owners who are now the possessors of the banner boats on these waters.
