Full Text

The stm. LADY ELGIN is to run between Buffalo and Chicago during the season of navigation, this year, leaving Buffalo, on her first trip, on the 24th inst. "During the spring," says the Buffalo Express, "she has had a new and powerful engine placed in her and other improvements necessary. She will be ready for service in about 10 days, and under the command of Capt. Chamberlain, she must become popular with the traveling public. She is nearly new, having come out last season, and is one of the best business boats on the lakes. We congratulate our western friends on their good fortune in has=ving the ELGIN in the Upper Lake trade."
