The New Steamer and Her Route.

Hon. A.C. Mattoon has contracted the timber for the passenger and freight propeller which he proposes to build this winter, and work will be commenced probably about the first of January. She is to be 110 ft. keel, 120 ft, over all, 20 feet beam and will be of first class construction in every respect. She is intended as a day boat between Oswego and Alexandria Bay and the island region, leaving Oswego in the morning after the arrival of trains, and making the trip in seven hours, which will bring her to the Bay about 5 P.M. She will make seven stops - at Stony Island, in connection with the J.F. Dayan from Henderson and Sackets, at the Cape, probably the three island parks and other prominent points. The season will probably be from June 1 till September 10, and the balance of the season she will go into the freight business. She will be built on the island dock by Mr. John Riley. It is fully believed that such a boat on the route prepared will do a handsome business. Mr. Mattoon also proposes to open a branch of his immense green house at the Thousand Islands.
