A New Iron Steamer - A fine new iron steamer is at present in course of construction at Capt. Zealand's yard, under the supervision of Captain John Malcolmson, the owner. The hull was built at one of the famous establishments on the Clyde, Scotland, and having been set up complete, was again taken apart and shipped to this port. The keel was laid in October last and the work has since been in constant progress, it being expected that the new craft will be in readiness to launch about the first of June next. Her dimensions are: 144 feet in length; depth of hold 12 feet; registered tonnage 450. Her engine, a low pressure, is in course of construction at Messrs. F.G. Beckett & Co.'s machine works, on Simcoe Street. She is intended for the Hamilton and Montreal trade, and will be commanded by Captain Malcomlson himself.
