Lake Erie Steam Boat.

The Steam-Boat, lately built on Lake Erie, is named Walk-In-The-Water, a name borrowed (perhaps) from a late Indian Chief, but certainly expressive of a Steam-Boat's manner of travelling. The master of this walking machine is Capt. Fish, a name better adapted to swimming, than walking in the water. Instead of sailing, however, the boat will probably be said either to walk or to swim, from Buffalo to Detroit. With all our hearts, we wish her watry walks may be both pleasant and profitable.
