The elegant stm. PEARL, which ran between Cleveland and the Islands last summer, made her first excursion trip this year on the that route on Sunday. She has been repainted and fitted up in better shape than ever, and is now one of the handsomest boats on the lakes. The PEARL has ample room room for 500 passengers, and her staterooms, dining room and cabin accommodations are unsurpassed by any lake craft. She will begin her regular trips on the CLeveland and Island route on July 15. Her officers are as follows:
      Captain - John Edwards
      Mate - William Praverse
      Clerk - N.S. Clark
      Engineer - C.L. Barron
      Second Engineer - Charles Gates
      Steward - W.E. Bennett
      Last evening the stm. PEARL left Cleveland for Detroit, running on the RICE's route. It is expected yhat the latter boat will be rebuilt in about a month.
