Steamboats On Lake Michigan. - The great danger in navigating Lake Michigan from the want if good harbors, renders boat owners rather shy of trusting their crafts on that Lake during the season, and the small boats sent up from below, usually get stranded, or frightened back. The people of Chicago have therefore taken hold of boat building themselves, and the result is, that two new, snug boats, the JAMES ALLEN and GEORGE W. DOLE, are now plying from that port, the ALLEN to St. Joseph, and the DOLE to Michigan City and Milwaukie. The American says both are doing a profitable business in the transportation of passengers and freight.
