      The CITY OF St. JOSEPH in port.
The new propeller CITY OF St. JOSEPH, of Graham & Morton's line, arrived in Chicago yesterday on her maiden trip. She is of medium dimensions, and is a handy business boat. Her model is good, she is strongly built and well finished, and thoroughly equipped. Her steam power is good. She has full-length cabins, and is designed for the passenger and freight traffic. The CITY OF St. JOSEPH, on the line between Chicago and St. Joseph and benton Harbor, fill a want and will enjoy a large patronage. Graham & Morton are fair towards their patrons, and have built up a name and fame that will prove lasting. The new craft is a credit to builders and owners alike, and the Inter Ocean wished her a long and lucky career. from this time forward she will make regular trips.
