Capt. Pheatt's new boat, the TOLEDO, was launched in fine style at Toledo on Monday last, and will shortly compete for a share of the Maumee business. She is larger too than we at first supposed, being 532 tons burthen, 172 feet keel, 182 feet on deck, 26 feet beam, and 11 feet hold. This is about the size of the CHESAPEAKE, only one foot deeper and three feet wider, a desideratum in boats of this description. Had the HARRISON a few feet more beam she would be a most finished model. The owners of the new boat anticipate much from her advantage, and expect to have her out (en dishabille of course) early in October. The great increase in the business of the Maumee Valley, warrants this augmentation to our already large number of steam craft.
