New Steamer. - While at Clayton one day last week, we were shown through a steamboat now bilding at that place by E.G. Merrick & Co., which is intended to surpass everything in size, speed, and magnificence, that has
ever been launched upon the lower lake.
She is 224 feet keel, 32 1/2 feet beam, 12 1/2 feet hold, and an entire length of 242 feet. She is to be propelled by an engine of 60 inch cylinder, and 12 feet stroke, from the foundry of Dunham & Co., New York City.
This splendid vessel is intended for the Ontario and St. Lawrence Steamboat Co., and will be completed in time for the next spring trade. She will have a steerage and after cabin below deck, and will be fitted with state rooms above. She will be entirely finished at Clayton, and when completed will be an ornament to our lake marine, and a credit to the enterprise and munificence of the company at whose expense she is constructed. - Watertown Journal.
