The steam railroad ferry boat built by the Port Huron Dry Dock Co., at their yard in this city, was launched about noon today. She did not go off when first started, and was afterwards hauled off by the tug KATE MOFFAT. This boat was built for the G. R. R. R. Co., and is designed for ferrying cars over for the Port Huron & Lake Michigan R. R. to Sarnia. She goes to Detroit as early as possible to relieve one of the iron boats used there which has become disabled and is to go into dry dock. She is christened the SAGINAW.

      The SAGINAW is having her engine put in position. She will go into the dry dock Company's dock to have her shaft and screw put in, as soon as the schooner MARY E. PEREW can be got out. Workmen are now breaking up the ice in the dock in order to free her.
