The steamer OHIO, The Sandusky Mirror says that this popular boat has changed owners, the purchaser being Mr. Brooks. We believe she will continue her trips as heretofore without interruption. Capt. Capron takes the place of Capt. Ludlow, and we are justified in the belief, from his well known seamanship and gentlemanly character, that the OHIO will lose nothing of her well-earned reputation in his hands.

      The stm. OHIO, owned by Mr. James Brooks, of Conneaut, we learn, after many vain attempts to get her over the bar in front of Conneaut harbor, was compelled to pass the harbor at this place where she is now snugly laid up for the winter.

      The OHIO. - This excellent boat is undergoing thorough and complete repairs at the harbor, and is nearly ready to resume her place in the Sandusky line for the season. Major Brooks's determined that the OHIO shall rank No. 1 in this line, and we are pleased to learn that Capt. Capron will continue in command - an officer of large experience and entitled to the confidence of the business community and tarvelling public. --- Conneaut Reporter.
