ROCHESTER and NEW YORK of the Union Steamboat Co., the lake line of the Erie Railroad. The ROCHESTER has a capacity of 2,220 fross tons and the NEW YORK 1,921 gross tons. They will enter the service of the Union Transit Co. at once and remain with the fleet of that line for the balance of the season, carrying package freight between Buffalo and Duluth.
      With these added steamers the Union Transit Line has a fleet of 6 boats, and the NICOL, WARD and PORTAGE being now in commission and the STEVENS, which is undergoing repairs at Tonawanda, is expected to be ready for business about August 1st.
