NEW STEAMER AT SAGINAW. - The new steamer built at the yard of Messrs. Tripp & Kirby, was launched Saturday evening, at about 6 o'clock. She took to her native element as naturally as a duck - not the slightest accident occurred of any kind. She is a splendid model, and her owners claim that she will be second to none afloat on the western waters in point of speed and finish. She is to receive the machinery formerly used in the steamer RUBY. We have not learned the proposed name of the new candidate for travellers favors, but have heard the name of VALLEY BELLE spoken of as one likely to be chosen. - Enterprise.

      NEW STEAMER. - The new steamer EVENING STAR, which was built last winter, and since June has been on the Saginaw Line, is about to be purchased to take the place of the ISLAND QUEEN in the Island trade. She is a beautiful boat 180 feet long, 24 feet wide, 8 feet hold and draws 4 feet of water. She will cost $45,000 cash. The ISLAND QUEEN will be sold and probably go to Saginaw. - Saginaw Register.
