THE STEAMSHIP JOSEPH S. FAY. - This new steamer, the largest that has ever been built at this port, is now about ready for business. She is owned by Messrs. Alva Bradley, H. Fay of Boston, Captain George Stone, and one or two others. Her dimensions are as follows: Length of keel, 213 feet; depth of hold 15 feet; Custon House measurement 882 tons. Her cost is somewhere in the neighborhood of $80,000. It is estimated by good judges that she will carry 1,600 tons of freight. The FAY has a fine model, and as she is intended particularly for freighting, attention has been directed towards making this vessel as near perfect in this respect as could be done. - Cleveland Herald
