Lake Craft - There were in harbor this morning, nineteen steamboats, two ships, one barque, seven brigs, and sixty-one schooners. In all ninety sail. Among these is not included the JULIA PALMER, now being converted into a steamer. Of the steamboats, about one
half are undergoing repairs or being repainted, preparatory to commencing the fall campaign, the others are taking their regular turn in line. The sail craft are all, or nearly all, loading or unloading and present a lively appearance. --- Buffalo Com.

      . . . . .

      A few short weeks ago, and the JULIA PALMER entered our harbor ship rigged, and to all appearances "a gallant bark." She is now a veritable steamboat, and will take her station among her competitors on Thursday next. Although not decorated with un-meaning gew-gaws or flame grained panels, to catch the eye, she is nevertheless respectably fitted up, and will prove to emigrants a comfortable conveyance. Capt. Freeman is to have command.
