We received a call from Mr. Hayden on Monday last, and from him learned several interesting particulars relative to the new steamer now being built by Capt. Gance for the Grand River trade. Her name is to be the VALLEY CITY. Her length of keel is 140 ft.; breadth of beam 21 ft.; depth of hold 5 ft. The model is an entire new one, and, she is finished and ready for business, at the opening of navigation next spring, it is contemplated she will be the fastest boat that has been on the river, and will easily make round trips between Grand Rapids and this place by daylight. William C. Hayden, the master builder, is from this place. - Grand Haven News, Sept. 19.
