The Marine City correspondent of the Detroit Post writes as follows: It appears that we are going to have a lively time on the St. Clair River for some time to come. The steamers HOLT and RIVER KING are now running between Sarnia and Wallaceburg, on the Canadian side. The fast sailing steamer T.D. DOLE has been purchased by Capt. Henry Bury of Sombra, and is now being thoroughly overhauled at Clark's shipyard, Detroit. She will receive new cabins for passengers and will be ready for the Sarnia and Wallaceburg run on the 15th inst. On this side we have the M.D. WARD and the GEORGE S. FROST running between Detroit and the St. Clair River ports. The CARRIE H. BLOOD is a new river boat and will be ready to take the river route between Port Huron and Algonac on Monday night, she has a splendid model and is rather sharp on her water line. She was built by P. Lester, who is also the master builder for the M.D. WARD. The CARRIE H. BLOOD is owned principally by Mr. C.A. Blood, collector of customs and Mr. E. Hart and will be commanded by Capt. R.J. Gordon from the RIVER QUEEN. Parties here are negotiating with others in Detroit for the purchase of a small propeller that will run about nine or ten miles an hour, to ply between Algonac and Port Huron.
