ANOTHER STEAM BOAT.
We take great pleasure in informing our readers that another British Steam Boat will shortly display the St. George in our waters. Duncan McGregor Esq., is now lengthening and raising upon his schooner Rob Roy, for the purpose of converting her into a steam boat, to ply between the River Thames, Malden, Sandwich, Goderich and other ports in the Upper Lakes. The Rob Roy is a beautiful model, will be fitted up in a commodious manner with awning from stem to stern, and a first rate Engine. We wish her success and hope she will amply remunerate her liberal owner, whose enterprise and activity contribute so largely to the improvement of his neighbourhood.
