The Numbering of Ships - required by Merchant Shipping Act. (nothing specific to lakes)

The steamer Sir Charles Napier is this season on the route between this city and Cape Vincent, and is much superior to the boats hitherto on this line in point of comfort and accommodation. Her cabins and saloon have been very neatly fitted up during the winter, and when we say that Capt. Creighton commands, nothing more need be said in her favor. The run is made round the head of the island in an hour and a half.
