THE "LAKE BREEZE" -- On Thursday night of last week this propeller for the Windsor, Amherstburg and lake Shore route made her first trip from Windsor to this port, where she lay all day Thursday, and went down shore on Friday evening. On Monday she passed up with a full load of freight from shore ports for Windsor and on Tuesday evening she came down with 100 barrels of flour and other goods for Mr. Twomey of this town, besides goods for other parties and a large load for lake shore ports. She was unable to take all the freight awaiting her. The LAKE BREEZE will hail from Windsor. She is a much larger boat than the BOB HACKETT and has a large forward cabin and dining room and a well furnished after cabin with state rooms. her engine is a high pressure one from the Novelty Works, Toledo. Capt. Frank Hackett commands her and Mr. Robert Galbraith is acting as clerk, Mr. Joseph King being at present engaged in settling up the BOB HACKETT's affairs. During the present winter the decks of the LAKE BREEZE will be renewed and other improvements made on her at a cost of between $3,000 and $4,000.
