Full Text

The stm. ENTERPRISE, built last spring by Carroll Bros. of this city, for B.T. Babbitt, the celebrated soup-manufacturer of New York, has been completed, and as far as speed and economy in consumption of coal is concerned is a success. On her first trip from Utica to New York she is said to have beaten the Baxter stm. CITY OF NEWARK, 24 hours. The consumption of coal by the ENTERPRISE, when loaded, is about 4 pounds per mile. She has a boiler of the upright pattern. Her machinery is something new, being the invention of Mr. H.P. Minot, Superintendent of Mr. Babbitt's iron works at Whitesboro, N.Y. On a draft of 6 ft. of she will carry 225 tons.
