Light-House Supply Steamer.
The U.S. light-house supply steamer Haze arrived in port Saturday night and, this morning, after furnishing Captain Munson with the necessary stock, left for the lower end of the lake and St. Lawrence river.
The Haze is a fine looking boat, having been thoroughly rebuilt at Buffalo during the past winter. She supplies lighthouses on the American side from Detroit to Ogdensburg with oil, wicks and other necessary material for lighting the weary mariners. She is commanded by Captain James Mackenzie and has on board Commander Edward E. Potter, U.S.N., who is on a tour of inspection. We will venture to say that the inspector will not find on his whole tour lighthouses cleaner or better kept than the two at this port under Captains Munson and Budds.
