Mr. Mattoon's New Steamer.

Mr. John E. Riley has just completed a handsome model for a steamboat which Hon. A.C. Mattoon contemplates building. The proposed steamer is to be of the following dimension: 98 feet overall; 17 feet 10 inches beam; 8 feet depth of hold. She will be built to carry freight or passenger or both. Work on the boat will be commenced in the Miller shipyard immediately, Mr. Riley superintending it, and it is expected will be completed so that the steamer will be ready for business at the ime of opening navigation in 1880. As may be seen by the dimensions the boat will be a large and safe one and will have the Ellsworth's large boiler and engine. Her passenger deck will be five feet from the bottom of the hold.
