The new candidate for nautical honors was named the Ottawa, and is a vessel of fine build, strength and carrying capacity being combined to make her a good and profitable vessel. She is about the tenth sea-going ship launched from the same yard, within the last two or three years, comprising a tonnage approaching to 10,000 tons. Another vessel is being built in the same yard the frame work at present being completed. This new ship will be ready for launching in the spring.
