Description
Full Text

The New Steamboat ST. CLAIR.-- We visited on Saturday, the new Steam Boat ST. CLAIR, owned by our enterprizing townsman John Robinson.-- The ST. CLAIR was formerly the RHODE ISLAND, but there is but little more left of that boat than there was of the boy’s jack knife after it had three new blades and two new handles.
She is thoroughly and entirely metamorphosed into a new and elegant boat. Her tonnage is 250; length 150 feet; breadth of beam19 feet, with 8 feet hold. The gentleman’s cabin and saloon are on the upper deck, somewhat after the fashion of the GREAT WESTERN. She has two state rooms on the upper deck, and four on the main deck, adjoining the ladies cabin, which is admirably adapted to comfort and convenience. She is finished in a neat, plain substantial manner, which does great credit to the taste of our worthy friend Gooding, and is well-guarded against accidents by fire.-- She will be under the command of Captain Burnet, formerly of the NEW ENGLAND, and makes her maiden trip to Cleveland on Tuesday afternoon.
