The new propeller SANTA MARIA stopped here for a while yesterday afternoon on her first trip. She is on her way to Toledo to take on fuel, and from there will take a tow barge and go to Ashland for lumber The SANTA MARIA is a handsome wooden vessel, 217 feet in length over all, and was built by the Morley's at Marine City for M. Dickens of that place. Her propelling power is derived from a compound fore-and-aft engine, constructed by the Riverside Iron Works of this city, and her boiler is from McGregor's Boiler Works, also of Detroit. - - Detroit Free Press
