Detroit, Sept. 30.
NEW STEAMBOAT. - The new Steam Boat, ERIE, lately built at our docks, and now running between this place and Fort Gratiot, we believe to be as fast a boat, without exception, as on the western waters. Last Wednesday she ran from this place to Palmer, St. Clair County, a distance of 55 miles in 4 hours, making an average of more than 13 miles per hour, and thus too, against a current of two and a half miles an hour.
