Yet Another.-- The new Steam Boat Monroe, Capt. H. Whittaker, came into this port, for the first time, on Thursday morning last. She is owned by the River Raisin Steam-Boat Co, was built at Monroe, M.T., and her engine, a high pressure, from the foundry of T. G. Moore, Detroit. The M. is 145 feet in length, beam, 47 feet, and of 350 tuns burden. Her Gentlemen's Cabin, has 33 berths, Ladies do. 12 do. and 4 State Rooms, Forward do. 51 do. and Steerage do. 20. This boat is certainly of fine appearance, and is very handsomely finished. She came in, in the morning, during a heavy gale, which she had buffetted the whole night. Her Captain informs us he has seldom seen a worse night upon the lake.--The sea stove a boat suspended astern, and carried it away, making a full breach into the cabin windows, and over the deck at the same time. With such a christening, and acquitting herself well, as she did, her reputation as a sea boat, is established. Barker & Holt, Agents.
