The Wisconsin River.-- An attempt is to be made this season to navigate, regulary, the Wisconsin River. For this purpose Capt. John Cook has constructed the hull of a boat at Sauk Patrie, and he arrived here yesterday from below, with the steam boat OTTER, the engine of which is to be transferred to the new hull. We hope Mr. C., will be successful in his enterprise. The business which is springing up along the Wisconsin is far greater than most people imagine. - - - Galena Gazette.
