Propeller TROY. --- This new and beautiful vessel reached our port on Monday last from Cleveland. We availed ourself of an hours leisure to inspect her during her stay here, and found her almost faultless in model and general construction She is neat, comfortable and substantial, and glides over the bosom of the water with graceful ease and rapidity. Her deck in commodious and pleasant, her cabin light and airy, and her engine one of unusual safety and power. In short, taking her altogether, no better propeller floats upon the lakes. The length of the TROY is 170 feet; breadth of beam, 21 feet; depth 10 feet, and of about 350 tons burthen. She is owned by Mr.L.Parmalee and others of Cleveland, and D.F.Dobbins and John Moore of Erie; and was built at Cleveland under the immediate supervision of Mr.Parmalee. D.F.Dobbins, Captain, and John Moore, Clerk. She will ply between Buffalo and Chicago. The proprietors and others are highly capable and deserving, and we bespeak for them the patronage of this and other posts on the lakes. ------- Erie Gazette
