DETROIT AND SANDUSKY. - It is now twenty-seven years since boats commenced plying regularly on the above route. The first steamer to commence running there was the Fashion, commanded by Capt. R. G. Evans, which extended her trips for a short time to Port Huron. She was finally placed on the route between Buffalo and Erie, and her place supplied by the Arrow, first sailed by Capt. Atwood, then by steamers Bay City, T. Whitney, Philo Parsons, Island Queen, and at present by the Jay Cooke. Prior to the route being opened up, travel was accommodated by boats plying between Buffalo and Detroit.
