Marine City.---The splendid new steambarge MIAMI, built here this summer, was towed to Port Huron on the 12th.inst. to receive her machinery at the Phoenix Iron Co's works. The MIAMI's dimensions are as follows:-Keel, 130 feet; overall 142 feet; beam, 27 feet 6 inches; depth of hold, 8 feet 10 inches. Two spars with pilot house forward. Steeple compound engine, high pressure 16 inches, low pressure 30 inches, with 26 inch stroke, built by the Phoenix Iron Works, Port Huron; 8 foot Trout wheel; Otis steel boiler, 7 feet 6 inches shell, 14 feet long, allowed 120 pounds pressure; steel arched and built of the choicest timber, by the T. & S.T.Co. She will be commanded by Captain J.C.Miller, our Marine City marine collector and Harbor Master. We think the MIAMI is one of the finest steambarges ever built at this port. We wish captain Miller every success.
