Buffalo.---O'Grady and Mahar have just launched from their yard, at the foot of Genesse Street a new steam yacht for Captain S.M.Sloan. She is well and substantially built, and as strong as wood and iron can make her; a fact that can always be said of O'Grady and Mahar's work. Her dimensions are 60 feet over all, 11 feet beam, and 5 feet depth of hold. The engine is a 10 by 12 high pressure, built by Sutton Bros. Her piping and engine fittings were looked after by the well known Tim McEboy, of the firm of J.R.Rucket & Co. Her boiler is of steel three eighths of an inch thick, and is allowed 135 pounds of steam. Her cabin accommodations are unsurpassed for a boat of her size, having two roomy cabins, with convenient closets and cloak rooms, finished in cherry. She is named ALEX H.SLOAN, in honor of a brother of the owner.
