Boats For Government

It is reported among steamboatmen, that Government wants fifty more boats.  The old steamers City Belle, Alhambra and Golden Era, belonging to the Minnesota Packet Company, passed down yesterday to St. Louis, where they are to undergo repairs, and will probably be offered to Government.
