Boscobel (Steamboat), 24 Sep 1867

Full Text

A new large propeller called the BOSCOBEL, made her appearance at this port yesterday morning having passed here a few days since on her first voyage from Chicago, where she is owned. She was built at Green Bay during the fall of last year, and it must be admitted, will compare in standard throughout with any in commission. After she was launched she was towed to Chicago for the purpose of receiving her machinery and being finished. She has the engine formerly in the IOWA, with 2 new boilers 15 ft. long, 7 5/8 ft. shell, and a cylinder 36*48. When about half freighted she averages 11 miles per hour, and loaded 8 miles . Thus far the present season and until the present trip, she has been freighting lumber between Green Bay and Chicago. She is owned by W.B. Ogden, of Chicago.
