LAUNCH OF THE CALVIN
A FINE NEW STEAMBARGE.
Calvin & Son's new steamer D.D. CALVIN was successfully launched yesterday afternoon. She was built by the old veteran, Henry Roney, who has been upward of thirty years in the same employment. The vessel is 180 feet long, 32 feet beam, 15 feet hold. She is very strongly built of the best quality of white oak and thoroughly salted throughout, and is to be commanded by Captain A.H. Malone [ the Commodore of Calvin & Son's fleet], who has a one-fourth interest in her. She will probably be used in the pine lumber trade between Lake Superior and Kingston, and beside carrying a cargo herself, will tow three or four schooners. Her engines were designed by J.F. Parkhurst, and were built by the Globe Iron Works of Cleveland, Ohio. They are of fore and aft type of compound, with 27 inch high pressure cylinder and 50 inch low pressure cylinder, with a stroke of 36 inches. --- Kingston Whig.
