The new prop. T.U. BRADBURY, built here is taking her cargo for Buffalo, at the warehouse of Otis, Knight & Co. She is a fine propeller and is a credit to the Cleveland shipyards. She was built by Luthur Moses for Messrs. Robert Montgomery, of Buffalo, and Capt. Malcomb McBride, of this city. She registers 546 tons custom house measurements, and has a capacity of 6,000 barrels of flour. She has a very powerful oscillating engine made at Newburgh engine works, N.Y., and set up by the Buffalo Engine Works, which propels a single wheel 11 1/2 ft. in diameter. She is officered as follows: Master, Capt. Malcomb McBride; 1st Mate, Christopher Guilder; 2nd Mate, Thomas Tence; 1st engineer Annin Willaims; 2nd Engineer, J.C. Clark. She is named by Capt. Montgomery in honor of his old friend and democrat, Mr. T.U. Bradbury of Canadaiugua. SHe cost $35,000. Her model is excellent and her engine works beautifully. Withsuch a big hearted commander, as Capt. McBride, she deserves the best of luck and will win success. She will run in the Buffalo and Chicago trade. - Cleveland Plain Dealer.
