NEW STEAM-BOAT, -- We are informed that our friend Capt. Burtis, of the little fairy Argo, is about enlarging his sphere of usefulness and enterprise. He has commenced building a new boat of greater dimensions, and on an approved plan, which will be afloat in the early part of the summer. He intends running her once a week from Detroit to Maumee, Gros Ile, Malden, Sandwich, Chatham and Fort Gratiot; and should he meet with encouragement, to Goderich. In the event of the large ingress of emigrants expected at this place, she may prove eminently useful in forwarding them to their ultimate place of destination. As a safe and certain mode of conveyance, she will prove worthy the notice and patronage of the Canada Company and others engaged in the upper settlements. Capt. Burtis has been long and favorably known in the Province. We wish him success.
