THE STEAMBOAT MILWAUKIE. - The steamboat MILWAUKIE has been rebuilt with a full length upper deck cabin in the modern style, and fitted up and furnished in a manner not inferior to the best boats on the lake. She is indeed a floating palace. She has large and airy state rooms, new bedding and furniture, and everything about her looks comfortable.
      The MILWAUKIE came up from Buffalo on Saturday evening. We suppose she is to run in the Sandusky and Buffalo line, as she is owned by Messrs. B. Higgie & Co., of this city. She has a new engine from the Cleveland foundry, and from the trial that has been made with her, it is expected that she will be fast.
      She is commanded by Capt. John Shook, than whom a more experienced and careful commander is not often found. - Sandusky Mirror.
