The steamer Bay State (of the American Express Line,) arrived at this port, from Lewiston, Saturday morning, at six o'clock and fifty minutes. Running time from Niagara River to the Ogdensburgh Railroad Depot, fifteen minutes. [Ogdensburgh Daily News]

This is great travelling, and we transcribe the record of the Bay State's exploit for the benefit of posterity. Two hundred and twenty miles in "fifteen minutes" is rather "tall travelling" for a steamer. Our Yankee friends, can without doubt, "beat all creation" in the steamboating line !

The Oswego Commercial Times of Saturday says: "The schooner Anawan, Capt. Herring, which was capsized off Pultneyville on Monday night, was towed into our harbour yesterday morning, by the steamer Howard, Capt. Johnson, with the aid of the Brig Champlain. The cook, a lad of this city, by the name of James McGrath, was found drowned in the forecastle. There were altogether, six persons on board the Anawan at the time of the disaster, 5 of the crew, and one passenger. The body of the boy is the only one discovered. The vessel has not yet been pumped out, and it is possible other bodies may be found on board. In the absence of any further information, it is feared that all on board the Anawan have perished."
