Capt. M. J. Galvin has named the steamer Vanderbilt after his friend John R. Stirling, now of Detroit, but formerly of this city. Capt. Galvin bought six boats from the Western Transit Company last fall. Though the Vanderbilt's name has been officially changed to John R. Stirling, a christening party may be held when the boat opens her season of navigation in the spring.
