The propeller NIAGARA-- This beautiful propeller got under way for Buffalo, her first trip, last night, well loaded.
The NIAGARA was built by Messrs. Calkins & Co., on the opposite side of our river during the last winter, and is owned by A.R. Cobb of Buffalo and others. She is a staunch craft of excellent model, 454 tons burthen, 170 feet keel, 24 feet 4 inches beam, 11 feet 4 inches depth of hold.
Her engine was built by our townsman Reese & Co. It is certainly a piece of work creditable to those gentlemen.
The NIAGARA is under command of Capt. J.H. Hagardon an experienced seaman, and we observe that our young friend C.L. Seymour fill the post of clerk. Success to the NIAGARA, her brave officers and crew, and her very worthy clerk.
