Lake Erie Steam-Boat Line.

The several Boats composing this Line have had great improvements and alterations made to them, during the winter past, which will contribute greatly to the comfort & convenience of Passengers. The engine of each Boat has been taken down, altered, repaired, and place up in the best possible condition. The alterations in the engines are calculated to give the Boats great speed and force, and enable them to perform their trips with very great certainty.

The weak and inefficient engine on board the Enterprise, has been taken out, and its place supplied by a new one of approved construction and great power which will enable her to perform her trips regularly. The following is the order of sailing:


W. Norton, Master


John F. Wight, Master



W.T. Pease, Master



G. Miles. Jr. Master


The Boats on their passage up and down the Lake will receive and land passengers, wind and weather permitting, at Erie, Ashtabula, Grand River, Cleaveland and Sandusky. It is in contemplation to send a boat during the months of June, July , and August, into the Upper Lakes to Green Bay, Mackina and Saut de St. Marie. Should this be the case due notice will be given.

These Boats are well found in every respect. Their accommodations are ample, and they are commanded by men of experience and ability.
