NEW STEAMER. -- The new side-wheel steamer built at Toledo for Captain Dustin and others, arrived up at this port yesterday, in tow of the steamer DART. She is intended for the Saginaw and Toledo route, and has accordingly been constructed for light draught, with ample freight and passenger accommodations, and as regards speed, it is stated will have no superior afloat. She has a splendid model, and in all that pertains to a fine looking steamer, we should judge her faultless. Having said this much, others need only look for themselves in order to arrive at the same conclusion. She is christened the CITY OF TOLEDO. Her boiler and machinery will at once be placed on board of her, which with the work of completion, will be terminated in the course of a few weeks, when she will commence plying on her intended route. -- Detroit Free Press
