General Vance (Steamboat), 6 Jun 1844

Full Text

      The Gen. Vance.--The steamboat Gen. Vance will run during the season, three times a week, between Detroit and the Maumee, touching at Monroe. Mr. S. D. Woodworth, so well known to all our citizens as the gentlemanly and obliging host of the Steamboat Hotel, will have the command of the Vance, and will devote himself to the business with his characteristic energy and industry. He has exhibited his usual taste in fitting her up in the most elegant and convenient style. She has been entirely repainted , within and without, and from top to bottom. She has also a number of painted panes off glass in the style of the Wiskonsan. Her interior has been rearranged, so as to exclude effectually, the steam and smoke from the cabin. The engine has been thoroughly overhauled, and sails are also provided in case of accident. The cabin and cooking rooms are furnished with neatness, and everything provided for the comfort of the passengers, equal to the large class boats. The Vance will leave today on her first trip.
