The small stm. CHAMPION, as many are probably aware makes her appearance occassionally at Windsor, from Pt. Pelee Island, and with our old friend Capt. McCormick in command, in a convenience to those wishing to travel that way. There are those desirous of knowing from whence came this commodious craft. She was a few years since known as the SAM LEWIS, built at Detroit, afterwards sold to Canadians and name changed.
