      St. Clair claims the biggest carrying boat for her dimensions of any vessel on the water, which the same is the barge JUSTIN R. WHITING, built at St. Clair, commanded by Capt. Simon Langell, and owned by him and J.C. Darling of Marine City. In her first trip this season she took 762 tons of salt from Saginaw to Toledo on a draught of 11' 8". Her dimensions are 144' x 26' x 12' 6" and registered tonnage, new measurement, of 458.

      The barge JUSTIN R. WHITING, now lying at St. Clair, will proceed to Detroit as soon as navigation opens and have a new engine and boiler put in, making her what she was intended, a steam barge.
