Description
Full Text

One of the finest propellers to stop at this port this season is the prop. ST. LOUIS, of the Union line, which arrived up from Buffalo on her first trip of the season yesterday morning, and which leaves this evening for Lake Superior ports. During the past winter this propeller has almost been entirely rebuilt, her arches have been lengthened and her hull strengthened, so that now she is one of the strongest propellers on the lakes. Her cabins are unusually rooomy and handsomely furnished, as are her state rooms, some 40 in number. Between $10,000 and $15,000 has been expended in improving her the past winter. Her officers are as follows: Master, J.W. Condon; Clerk, S.H. Davis; Steward, Jas. Delano; Engineer, F. Rehbaum; mate, Wm. Smith.
