Full Text

The fine new prop. CITY OF DETROIT, just built at Marine City for C.C. Blodgett, which is to take her place in the Detroit and Buffalo line, in connection with the New York & Erie Railroad, is now loading for her destination. She is spoken of as being one of the very best specimens of naval design and workmanship afloat. She has all the latest improvements, including new features in her engines and boilers, which are spick and span new. Every pain has been bestowed upon her in the choice material, and the putting of it together, and she will be a creditable and valuable auxillary to our lake marine. Her dimensions are: 166 ft. keel, 28 ft. beam and 11 ft. 9 inches hold. She will register about 625 tons. - Free Press, 18th.
