p.2 Steamer Kingston - The steamer Kingston having been fully fitted up again, has been put in her regular place in the Royal Mail Line. She looks well, and makes her usual speed. Her arrival somewhat behind the usual time yesterday afternoon was owing to some hours' detention by the fog on the river. A good many people went down to see the steamer, and many were the congratulations Captain Dunlop received on his and his vessel's reappearance on the route.

Propeller Her Majesty - The propeller Her Majesty made a further short excursion in the harbor yesterday afternoon, in order to afford the government inspector of steamboats for this district, Mr. McCausland, who was from illness prevented from being present at her first trial trip, an opportunity of thoroughly examining the improvements made to her engines, etc. The trial was most satisfactory in every respect, particularly as regards economy in fuel, condensing power and speed, even exceeding the expectation of her owners. There were present yesterday many of the leading men of the steamboat interest of the city, who were all well pleased with the trip.

-The steamer Traveller was burned at Eagle Harbor, Lake Superior. No lives were lost, but the boat was a total loss. Valued at $40,000. Insured for $20,000.
