The Amherstburg Courier has the following:
      The MOHAWK - This fine iron low pressure steamer is being prepared for the ensuing season. Her accommodations are being extended by the erection of state rooms on the upper deck. When all the improvements which are being made, are completed, she will be as commodious, safe and tight a craft there is upon Lake Erie. She is built of iron, with water-tight compartments, which precludes the possibility of her sinking, even should she be run down. She will be ready as soon as the navigation season opens, to take her station on the Buffalo and Port Stanley route, and will be commanded by Capt. Hollywood, whose urbanity and attention to his passengers are too well known to need any eneomuim from us. If comfort and safety in in a steamer ensure patronage, we are confident the exertions of the owners of the MOHAWK, Messrs. Park & MacLeod, to make her all that is desirable, will not go unrewarded, and that she will command her share of the traffic in her route.

The iron steamer MOHAWK, which plied between this city and Port Stanley last summer, has been purchased by parties in Detroit for a ferry boat. She was built in England, brought to this country in seperate pieces, and here put together; is a stoutly built boat, and will prove of good capacities.
