The new propeller FOREST CITY, Pheatt Master, built at Cleveland, was taking on a large load of freight yesterday at the foot of Main street, preparatory to going out last evening. She is a good looking craft and will prove a valuable addition to our marine.

      The new steamer FOREST CITY, says the Detroit Tribune, is one of the best low pressure boats on the lakes. She is 205 feet long, ?0 feet breadth of beam, and 9 feet depth of hold. She is driven by a powerful low pressure engine of 42 inches diameter and 10 feet stroke, with a 28 feet wheel. Her upper cabin is 160 feet long, with state and bed-rooms to accommodate a large number of passengers. The furniture is of the latest style and best description, and no pains or expense have been spared to make her one of the best boats on the western waters. Our old friend, Capt. L. A. Pierce takes the command, assisted by D. Carter as Clerk, and L. D. Price as steward. She leaves on her first trip to Cleveland tomorrow eve, at 6:30 o'clock.
