Detroit, October 13.
WESTWARD HO. - A new and beautiful little steamboat, called the DON QUIXOTE, arrived at our wharves last week, on her route to Grand River of Lake Michigan, being destined to ply between the mouth of that river and the Grand Rapids, about fifty-five miles above. This boat, with the line of stages now in operation, completes the communication from Detroit to the mouth of Grand River We congratulate the inhabitants of that section of country, and of Ouisconsin, in having, thus early, a communication opened, which is not only practicable, but safe and expeditious; and to the worthy proprietors and captain of the DON, we wish a remuneration equal to their public spirit and the importance of their enterprize. - Daily Advertiser.
