The former blockade CHICORA has arrived in tow of a tug. She is an iron steamer measuring 230 x 26 and has an oscillating engine with 52 inch cylinder and 4 foot stroke. Ever since the close of the Civil War she had been tied up at Halifax, where she was purchased last fall by Malloy & Co., of Toronto. She came through the canal in two sections. She will be fitted up by David Bell and run as a passanger steamer between Collingwood and Fort William. Her speed is from 16 to 18 miles per hour.
