The Lake Superior Journal says that the " new passenger propeller NORTHERN LIGHT, Capt. John Spaulding, is a very neat thing. We visited her for the first time on Tuesday of this week, as she lay at the Cleveland Company Dock, bound down, and were surprised to find how commodious are all her arrangements for passengers, and what an air of comfort there is about her. We learn that she makes capital time, and is not necessitated to run the risk of sending passengers into eternity." The LIGHT leaves for Superior tonight.
