      The Cleveland Transportation Co. launched the second propeller of the season yesterday. On May 15th the GENEVA was put into the water, and now, only a month later, the VIENNA has followed suit. The vessel is staunch and well built, carrying under all circumstances a burden of 850 tons, and in deep water a couple hundred tons more. She was built by Quayle & Martin for the company above mentioned. H. Maksehorn (?) will be captain, John Graham, first officer. The first engineer and chief engineer of the company is Doty. When once fairly on the lakes this boat, well built and well managed will be a worthy addition to the shipping facilities of this port. - Cleveland Leader.
