p.2 Our Fleet - We had at our wharves in this city yesterday, 12 steamboats, 6 brigs, and 22 schooners, in all 40 lake crafts. This is a pretty respectable fleet to be at one time, in a single port, far away in the interior and almost a thousand miles from the Ocean. What a contrast with the shipping which supplied the wants of the little trading and military posts of by-gone days! Those who fancied a few years ago that Detroit had then nearly reached her commercial acme were sadly mistaken. Never did she exhibit clearer signs than now of permanent and substantial growth in every department of industry and enterprize. Her course is onward with rapid strides. Let us all appreciate and act up to the high destiny of our cherished city. [Detroit Daily Advertiser, April 9th]
