The Steamboat Niagara, Capt. Pease, on her first trip up the lake, performed to admiration. She is admitted, by all, to be the handsomest Steam Boat on Lake Erie; well found, and well appointed in every respect.
The Editor of the Fredonia Censor, in noticing the arrival of the Niagara at Dunkirk, on her way up, complimented the Boat on her appearance, but stated that she was a "dull sailor." This opinion was formed, probably, on her long passage from Buffalo to Dunkirk; the boat having been delayed near Point Abino, for several hours, in overhauling some part of her machinery, which was not "in order." But, we presume, Mr. Frisbee, would have altered his opinion, had he witnessed her performance down the Lake; her speed being fully equal to that of the Pioneer, which is one of the fastest running boats on he [sic] the Lake.
