      The new and beautiful side-wheel stm. CHICAGO, which the Goodrich Transportation Co. has lately launched at Manitowoc, has been placed in commission. This steamer is of unexceptionable model, being the finest built of any side-wheel steamer on the lake. Her tonnage is 746; her length of keel, 205 ft.; breadth of beam, 30 ft.; depth of hold, 12 ft. She draws light, 7 ft. of water aft, and 6 1/2 ft. forward. The length of cabin over all is 185 ft. and 16 ft. in the clear. She has 62 staterooms, besides 6 family state-rooms on each side of the main cabin. Her engine was taken from the old MANITOWOC, and is a very serviceable and complete piece of machinery, with 46 inch bore and 11 ft. stroke.
