Description
Full Text

THE "GOLD HUNTER" - This fine vessel is just receiving her equipment for sea, (say the Cleveland Herald,) and is one of the finest craft ever built upon the lakes. She was built by Quayle & Martin for Mather & Co., of Chicago, under the immediate superintendence of Capt. A.C. Keating. Her dimensions are :- 132 feet keel; length on deck 135:38 feet; beam 26:03; hold 11:79; burthen by Custom House measurement 386:84-95ths. tons. She is to be sailed by Captain Alvah Shaver, former mate of the propeller OGDENSBURGH. Her cost ready for sea will be $17,000. She reflects great credit upon Capt. Keating and her builders, who combine as much experience, judgment and skill as any three men on the lakes.
