The MILWAUKEE has resumed her place in the line between Milwaukee and Grand Haven. The Sentinel says that she has undergone some material improvements during the 8 or 10 weeks she has been laid up. Her new cabin extends nearly the whole length of the upper deck. In its main features it is similar to that on the DETROIT. It is furnished in sumptious style, and painted and decorated with great taste. The state-rooms are large and comfortable. The furniture is of the finest polished oak, and the painting all in imitation of the same material, excepting the blinds on the cabin windows, which are of a light pink color, and look very tasty. The hurricane deck extends aft to the stern of the vessel, and about 10 ft. beyond the termination of the cabin, forming an awning under which passengers can enjoy the lake breeze in summer time without being exposed to the sun.
