The DALLAS is the name of the new iron cutter about to be built here for the Revenue Service. The materials are all nearly at hand, and the ship-yard at the foot of Michigan street has been choosen as a suitable place to put her together. The iron sheets are about three-eights of an inch thick, the same as the ABERT, but the internal fastenings will be much stronger. Her length between uprights is to be 144 feet -- 19 feet 6 inches space between her sides, and 21 feet beam. She will require 130 tons of iron for the hull. Her tonnage will not be far from 450.
The machinery, including two engines, are now being made at the Buffalo Steam Engine Works. Mr. Lupton has the general supervision for the construction. - - - Com.
