      A visitor---On Friday evening a handsome and commodious horse-boat, made its unexpected appearance in our river, and was brought along side of Berthelett's wharf, amidst the cheers of the multitude, whom the novel spectacle had called to the spot. She was built at Cleveland, by Capt. Burtis, and is 50 feet long, and 37 feet beam, with a double keel, between which the paddles are plied. She is calculated for six horses, and is intended by the proprietor as a ferry boat to ply between this city, and the Canada shore. We hope Capt. B. will find such encouragement as to induce him to carry his intentions into effect, because we think it would be a benefit to our city, and should wish that his enterprise might be rewarded. --- Michigan Herald.
