Bidwell & Banta have just completed their new steam canal tug, intended to run in the Western Lake Boat Line. She is 96 feet keel; 7 feet 3 inches hold; 16 feet 10 inches beam, and 100 tons burthen. She will carry 3,000 bushels of corn and is expected to make 3 miles per hour---about double the usual rate of Canal Boat speed. Her engine is from Shepard's Iron Works; she cost $4,000, and is commanded by Capt. J.B.C. Woodworth.
