The St. Cathrines Journal of a recent date has the following complimentary notice of the stmy ORIZABA, owned by George Howard, of this city: "One of the most beautiful, and we may add costly, specimens of marine architecture seen in our inland waters, passed through the canal Friday last. It was a steel plated steam yacht, built to order in Buffalo for Mr. Howard, of that city. It is 95 ft. long, and is said to cost no less than $25,000. The owner was making the first trip in it, intending to visit the Thousand Islands, in the River St. Lawrence. The yacht is named the ORIZABA." The ORIZABA has been running between here and Grand Island upwards of a year.
