The Express of this morning says: "It gives us pleasure to state that Captain L.H. Cotton, one of the best commanders on the lakes, is to have charge of the steamer BALTIC the coming season.
      The BALTIC is having new boilers put in, and her machinery improved, which will increase her speed and make her one of the 'No. 1' boats.

      THE BACTIC. - This supurb boat, having been provided with a new and more powerful engine, and having undergone a general rejuvenation, takes her departure tomorrow for Chicago. Under the command of Capt. Cotton, a thorough seaman, and a gentleman most favorably known to those who are accustomed to traverse our great lakes, she will undoubtedly add to the reputation he acquire last year, and be known as among the swiftest steamers afloat.
