A New Line Of Lake Boats - We have been requested to state, that another line of steamers will be placed upon the route between Kingston and the head of the lake, next spring. The knowledge of this fact may be very useful just now, when merchants and others are negotiating for their year's freight. We have long been of opinion that two lines of good lake boats are needed - a morning and evening line; and we hope that no unwholesome competition will lower the fares below a renumerating rate. The public are no gainers by ruinous prices for the opposition is sure at length to cease and then they have to pay for their cheap rides. If a moderate tarriff be established by mutual agreement between the two lines, the travel will be increased, and all parties be satisfied. - Whig
