The new steambarge KATE BUTTIRONI has arrived at Detroit from Marine City. The Free Press says of her: The new steambarge is 188 feet over all, beam 31 feet, hold 20 feet. She is a double decker, the lower hold being 13 feet deep, and is 7 feet 4 inches between decks. She has three masts, and draws, without her machinery or boiler, 6 feet 6 inches aft and 4 feet forward. This steamer was launched in November last, but could not get down sooner on account of the ice. She is intended for the general freight trade and is expected to carry 40,000 bushels of wheat. She will receive an engine and boiler similar to the ones in use in the steamship IRON AGE. Captain C. C. Norton, formerly of the GERMANIA, is in command.
