p.2 The London - The new steamer London, built during the past winter at Chippewa, arrived at Port Stanley on Saturday last, and left for Detroit and Chatham, whence she returned on Tuesday. The London is a splendid boat, 500 tons burthen, propelled by a low-pressure engine of 80 horse-power; her model, we are told, is praised by the best judges in naval architecture, and in point of finish she will beat favourable comparison with the best Boats on the Lakes. In her cabin arrangement she is like the Cunard liners, having first and second cabins, which will be a very great comfort for emigrants and travellers of limited means, who cannot afford to pay first cabin fare. She is commanded by that old favourite of the public, Captain H. Van-Allen. This splendid addition to our merchant navy on the Lakes, reflects additional credit on the Niagara Harbor and Dock Company. [St. Thomas Standard]
