The sidewheel iron stm. IVANHOE arrived here from Buffalo Saturday morning and is en route to Lake Superior, having been purchased by a party of gentlemen to ply between Portage Lake and L'Anne, for the accommodations of the freight and passenger traffic on that route. She is represented as being an excellent sea boat, and usually makes 10 miles an hour. Her accommodations are first class, and she will prove very acceptable to the travelling community in tghat section. She is commanded by Capt. Paul Pelky, who is well known in the Lake Superiorregion as an excellent navigator. The IVANHOE is in the third year of her existance, and in excellent condition for business.
