THE ONOKO AS OTHERS SEE HER

About noon on Saturday the new iron steamer Onoko arrived here with something over 88,000 bushels of wheat. She left Chicago last Tuesday at 4:30 p.m. and her time in coming down was three days and nineteen and a half hours. The Onoko is the largest vessel afloat on the lakes, and by far the homeliest. She looks very like a huge canal boat with a smoke stack and four sticks. Her model is really frightful; her upper works are without decent shape, and to cap it all, her painting is but a daub. For a new vessel, she is the worst looking sight that ever appeared on our inland waters. She could have been given a respectable appearance without much interfering with her carrying qualities. One of these days we will show those Cleveland fellows an iron steamer that will be worth looking at. The Onoko is an eye-sore. - [Buffalo Courier.
