Lake Ontario Steam-Boats. - By reference to an advertisement in our columns it will be seen that the Steamboat Ontario has commenced her regular trips between this port and Niagara, via Rochester, and to Ogdensburg via Sacket's Harbor and Cape Vincent. The Martha Ogden will soon commence her regular trips between this place and Niagara, Prescott, Kingston and Brockville.

These Steamboats have just undergone a thorough repair, and many improvements have been made which will add to the comfort of passengers. Their engines have been closely examined and improved by Mr.. Battles, of Albany, a well known and experienced mechanic. From the enterprising characters of the proprietors and our confidence in the skill and judgment of Mr. Battles, we have no hesitation in saying that this line of Steamboats may be relied upon by travelers for promptness, safety and comfort.

We learn from the Watertown Freeman that the remains of the Steam-Boat Brownville has been raised, and that some portion of her cargo is uninjured. We learn also that the boat is to be rebuilt. We wish the enterprising proprietors success.
