Yesterday the new steamer belonging to Messrs. Heron and Dick was launched from the yard of the Niagara Dock Company in gallant style, and was christened the City of Toronto. The new vessel is about seven feet longer than the Traveller, and will be propelled by two very superior engines of 45 horse power each. She will be furnished with wrought iron shafts and cranks. Her machinery is all ready and will be put into her forthwith. [Niagara Reporter]
