The old steamer BALTIC which has done good service on our lakes in days gone by, is being remodeled and will come out in the spring a propeller, with Capt. Whitaker's new invention of side screw wheels. The work is being pushed forward rapidly and a good deal of interest is manifested by lake men, in this new invention, as it is certain, should the experiment prove successful, to work a revolution in the building of lake craft. The engines which are finished pieces of workmanship, are being built at the foundry and machine shop of Barton & Gilbert, will be under the command, during the present season, of Capt. Averill, formerly of the propeller CHARTER.
