She is of 300 tons burden, 112 feet in length by 26 1/2 feet beam, 10 1/2 feet hold, and has a fine deck cabin with ten state rooms, two berths in each. She was built for the Grand Island Company by B. F. Delano, after a beautiful model furnished by Capt. A. Jones.--Barker & Holt, owners.
The Milwaukie is the first of a line of ships which the proprietors propose establishing to run weekly between Buffalo and Chicago, Milwaukie and other ports on the upper lakes. She is to sail on Saturday next. Wm. Dickinson, Captain.
