      LAKE ERIE STEAM BOATS.
      We have frequent inquiries, from distant places, concerning the Steam Boats of these waters.
The following is an extract of a letter to us, received yesterday, and dated. BOSTON, Mass., Dec. 8, 1834
"Of your city, and the region west of it, we know, in fact, but little; and form, for the most part, but very erroneous conclusions, in relation to either. We hear, often, of Lake Erie Steam boats, but know nothing of the number, and hardly more of their general character. If not too much trouble, may I ask that you will favour me with the names of the several Steam Boats upon Erie, and the more western lakes? Any facts relating to the business character of Buffalo, &c. would also be acceptable, should leisure permit. "
In compliance with the request of our correspondent, we have obtained from a gentleman who is an extensive owner the names of all our Steam Boats, and those of the British, which we subjoin.
We given them in this form, rather than in a private letter, that it may meet the eye of others, who are making similar inquiries.
      American Steam Boats on Erie and the Upper. Lakes.
      MICHIGAN, PENNSYLVANIA,
      THOMAS JEFFERSON, OHIO,
      SANDUSKY, GOVERNOR MARCY,
      GENERAL PORTER, DETROIT,
      DANIEL WEBSTER, OLIVER NEWBERRY,
      UNITED STATES, ENTERPRISE,
      CHARLES TOWNSEND, DELAWARE,
      NORTH AMERICA, WILLIAM PEACOCK,
      OLIVER H. PERRY, NIAGARA,
      MONROE, GENERAL BRADY,
      NEW-YORK, GENERAL GRATIOT,
      SUPERIOR, ANDREW JACKSON,
      UNCLE SAM, VICTORY,
      SHELDON THOMPSON, CAROLINE,
      WILLIAM PENN, MAJOR JACK DOWNING
      HENRY CLAY,
      British Do.
      MINESSETUNK, THAMES,
      ADELAIDE.
      Of the character of our Boats for strength, speed and elegance, we may challenge any water to a comparison. Many of them are of the largest class, and all well found.
Of facts relating to the business character of our city, we can at this moment do no more than refer our correspondent to our advertising columns; but will write him in a few days, in detail upon the subject.
