Full Text

A remarkably finely built vessel made her first appearance in Cleveland last week from Ashtabula Harbor. She is commanded by Capt. M.F. Dixon, and was built for Edward Harmon, and G. Shayler, owners, by the latter at Ashtabula. She is called the MARY COLLINS, after the daughter of Mr. H., lady of Mr. Collins, engineer upon the Lake Shore Railroad. Her dimensions are length 132.82 ft.; beam 27.51 ft.; hold 10.70 ft.; and registers about 365 tons. Her cabin is one of the most spacious and well finished which can be found upon sailing vessels on the Lakes. She is taking a cargo of coal at the dock of Perry, Cross & Co.
