The Steam-boat THREE BROTHERS. -- The enterprising and public-spirited Messrs. Eberts of the flourishing town of Chatham, have lately added to our few water craft a splendid new steamer bearing the above appropriate name. She was launched at Chatham last Spring, and made her first appearance on the Detroit river last week. We saw her forcing her way through the "subtle element," and from the moderate rate of speed exhibited, we calculate, that her engine is not of sufficient power or at all adapted to her size and build. She is, however, an excellent specimen of Canadian marine architecture, and we have been told that her internal arrangements are highly creditable to the taste and liberality of her worthy and spirited proprietors.
