A new Boat is also to be placed on Lake Erie by a British company; she will be the first boat owned in Canada on the Lake, those at present navigating it belonging exclusively to the American side. The engine of the Alciope, plying on Lake Ontario, and belonging to Robert Hamilton, Esq., of Queenston, will be taken out this fall and placed, we understand, in the Lake Erie Boat. A new high pressure engine of 160 horse power is now preparing in the States for the Alciope, which will very considerably augment the speed of this fine vessel, during the next season of navigation. - Montreal Gazette.
