Description
Full Text

The FOREST QUEEN built and owned by Capt. Ward, is receiving her finishing touches at Newport, and will come down next week. She is 200 ft. long on deck, 28 ft. beam, and 9 1/2 ft. depth of hold; being of about the same dimensions as the FORESTER, but will draw less water, and consequently be enabled to attain a greater degree of speed. She will be commanded by Capt. Clark, formerly of the CLEVELAND, PACIFIC and other steamers. Her first trip will be to Saginaw, after which she will take the place of the RUBY between this city and Port Huron.
