A new steamer, named the NEW ISLAND WANDERER, left this port today for the Thousand Islands. This excursion boat was built by G.W. Notter, and furnished with Trout engines and wheel. She is 120 ft. overall, 20 1/2 ft. beam, 6 ft. deep with 5 1/2 ft. draught of water. Everything about the steamer is of the best, her cabin being elegantly furnished by D.E. Morgan & Son. She will carry 500 people. The route of the steamer will include two 60 mile trips per day stopping at different points among the Thousand Islands. The owners are the Alexander Bay Steamboat Co., of which W.W. Butterfield is president and Anson Harder manager. Capt. Visger will command the steamer. Messrs. Brothers and Trout of Buffalo will accompany the vessel to its new home.
