We made a visit yesterday to this fine little steamer, now building at the upper end of the city. She is owned by Messrs. Larned & Ward, and Capt. Seliah Dustin. She is to be run between this city and Toledo, and will be commanded by Capt. Dustin. From a brief inspection, we conceived a very favorable opinion of the work that has been completed, and were assured that what was yet unfinished would be completed in an equally neat manner. The joiner work is under the direction of Messrs. Knowles & Gibbings, who are executing it in the most handsome style. Johnston, Wayne & Co., are the makers of the machinery. The dimensions of the DART are, 160 ft. keel, 23 ft. beam and 8 1/2 ft. hold; tonnage about 330.
