The new vessel ANNIE L. CRAIG cleared yesterday afternoon for Chicago, from which place she will run to Buffalo during the season. Her first load will be salt from Bay City to Chicago. During the forenoon she made a trip to Lake St. Clair and return, having on board a party of ladies and gentlemen, who highly enjoyed the ride. The ANNIE CRAIG was built for the Eagle Transportation Co. by Lynn & Craig, at Gibralter, and her engine by the Detroit Locomotive Works. Her dimensions are as follows: Keel 187 ft.. over all 191 ft., beam 3? ft. 8 inches; depth of hold 13 ft.; tonnage 889, new measurement. Her cylinder is 26 inches by 36 inches. She has 2 boilers, tubular, 6 ft. 9 inches by 17 ft. Every precaution has been taken to secure strength and safety and especially was this to be seen in the room
used for oils and lamps which is floored with sheet iron and lined with black tin, and in having an extinguisher. She is commanded by Capt. Dodge, formerly of the NEPTUNE, and her engineer is Mr. C.L. Barron.
