The first ferry-boat between Chatham, Ontario, and Detroit was the BROTHERS, which came out in 1839. She was commanded by Capt. Walter Eberts and ran on the route about twelve years, when she was burned. Capt. Eberts has been a resident of Chatham for many years and last week he died at the age of sixty-two years.
