STILL ANOTHER NEW STEAMER.---Steamboat enterprise has not yet died out, nor has it exhibited a falling off for the past few years. Our enterprising fellow citizen, E.B. Ward, Esq., who so recently launched that gem of a propeller, the ANTELOPE, has got still another steamer under good headway at Newport. Although modelled after the fashion of a side-wheel steamer, she is to be propelled by both engines now in the propeller GLOBE, which will be placed about amidships, with two wheels aft, like those of the NORTHERN LIGHT. She will be launched about Nov. 1st., and be finished in time for next spring's business. She will carry about 16,000 bushels.------Detroit Tribune

NOTE:--could also be the prop. B.F. WADE, which like the WATER WITCH was built at Newport 1862
