The Northern Transportation Co.'s new prop. CITY OF CONCORD is the second steamer built by the company under the present increase of capital. The following are her dimensions: Length over all, 150 ft.; breadth of beam, 26 ft. 4 inches; depth of hold 12 ft., and is about 450 tons burthen, new measurement. She is built after the same model as the OSWEGTECHIE, LOWELL and BROOKLYN, of the same line, with such improvements as experience suggested, one of which has been the lengthening of the cabin giving extra room in that quarter, and also raising the pilot house some 18 or 20 inches. Being built somewhat fuller than the older steamer of the line, the carrying capacity will be increased from 25 to 40 tons, which will make quite a difference in the seasons business. The CONCORD is provided with a new and powerful engine, having 26 inch diameter of cylinder and 36 inch stroke.
