River Steamer UNIQUE.
A rough sketch of the McElroy steamer, being built at Marine City for the Detroit and Lake St. Clair route, is printed herewith. She is 175 feet long, 26 feet beam over all. The quadruple expansion engines of this boat, which have caused a great deal of speculation as to her speed, and which are being built by the Frontier Iron Works of Detroit, were illustrated and described in the Review of May 10. The hull was designed by Mr. C. McElroy, the principal owner, who, although not a practical architect or builder, has a general knowledge of vessels. It is now said that the boat will be named UNIQUE. She will be commanded by Capt. John Robertson, formerly United States inspector of steam vessels in one of the river districts.
