LAKE SUPERIOR BOATS.-- Two first class propellers are being erected in this city to accommodate the Lake Superior trade.-- One, owned by Robert Hanna & Co., is in quite a forward state, and the contract requires her completion by the 15th of May next. She will be propelled by two powerful low pressure engines, with a separate boiler to each. A stack connects with each, thus leaving the entire cabin open from stem to stern. The other steam vessel, for Messrs. Hussey, Cooper & Howe, of Pittsburg, has been in process of construction but a few weeks. She will be commanded, as we have before stated, by Capt. J. E. Turner, and the former by Capt. Spaulding.

These new steamers, with the two constructed last year in Detroit, the Meteor and Pewabic, will add greatly to the safety and comfort of travel to Superior.--Cleveland Plaindealer, March 19.
