Tomorrow, at 3 o'clock, P. M. they will launch from Turner's ship-yard, a propeller of the largest size, capable of bringing from Chicago 15,000 bushels of wheat, and to be named "The REPUBLIC."
Her model and finish are said to be unequalled. Her engine is one of superior workmanship of the Cuyahoga Stea, Furnace, and we bespeak for her, beauty, great business capacity, and speed. --- Plaindealer, May 31.
