NEW STEAMER FOR WARD'S SAGINAW LINE. -- The new steamer for this line, built with water-tight compartments and other qualities to match, will be launched early next week at Marine City. It is expected that she will be ready for service by the 15th of June. She will be propelled by the engine formerly in the FOREST QUEEN, and will run between Toledo and Saginaw in connection with the SUSAN WARD. It is supposed she will be called the SAGANAW, and will be commanded by Catain Kinton, formerly of the QUEEN.
