The new propeller FOREST CITY is nearly ready for her first trip, the workmen are busily engaged in putting in her engine. She is a staunch boat, and her model is good. Her first trip will be made in August and she will run between this city and Chicago.

THE "FOREST CITY"--This fine propeller has just returned from the upper lakes on her first trip, with one of the largest cargoes ever brought to port by a propeller. The FOREST CITY is a fine craft, of a little over 500 tons Custon House measurement, was built at Cleveland for and is owned by a firm in Milwaukee and by Capt. Pheatt, who commands her. Success to her, for Harvey is as good a fellow who ever trod the quarter deck.
