QUICK TRIP.---The Steam Boat NIAGARA, Capt. Pease, left this port for Detroit, on Thursday evening last, and returned on Tuesday morning, touching at all the ports on her passage up; and at all on her passage down, excepting Cleveland and Dunkirk; thus accomplishing her trip both ways in 4 days and 13 hours, including her stay at Detroit, which was 21 hours. This we believe is the quickest trip ever made on lake Erie.
The NIAGARA proves to be a most admirable sea vessel and in point of speed ranks with the swiftest boats on these waters. We have heretofore spoken of her as being the handsomest both in model and finish. Her engine is of superior workmanship, and for its dimensions is one of great power. It was made by Mr. Langdon.
