A most successful launch came off at Chatham on Wednesday last [August 12], of the Quebec, the second of the two propellers ordered to be built her by Messrs. Beatty & Co. for their Sarnia and Lake Superior Line, the Ontario being the first. The Quebec is the large vessel. Her length is 202 feet; breadth of beam 34 ft. 6 in.; depth of hold 14 feet; her engine has two cylinders, each 36 by 34 inches, which will work up to 800 horse power. There are two boilers of the first-class, and they have been already fully tested. Her wheel is ten feet in diameter. Her tonnage is 900 carpenter's measurement, or 1,200 tons dead weight. The Quebec will proceed to Sarnia in a few days.
