Full Text

The third new propeller for the Northern Transportation Co. built at this port, was launched from the yard of Messrs. Frank Quayle & Louis Lafrinier, on Saturday last (8/8). She is of the following dimensions: Length 144 ft.; breadth of beam 26 ft. 2 inches; depth of hold 12 ft.; and will measure about 460 tons. The engine was built at the Atlantic Works, Boston, and has a stroke of 36 inches, with a bore of 26 inches. The NASHUA is of the same size, style and finish and general build of the other propellers for this company, of which we have already given extended notices. Messrs. Quayle & Lafrinier, however, we may say, have taken extra pains in the construction of this fine steamer, and she is equal in all respects to anything of the kind recently put afloat, for strength, durability and beauty of finish, and has added to the reputation of these experienced builders, but new firm. The NASHUA will be got ready for service as rapidly as possible. - Cleve. Herald.
