p.2 The steamer United Kingdom (which went formerly by the name of the Alciope), the property of Robert Hamilton, Esq. and commanded by Capt. Herchmer, arrived at Prescott, for the first time this season, on Sunday evening. During the time she was receiving on board her new engines, which are two horizontal high pressure of 120 horse power each, many additions and improvements were made in her general accommodations for passengers. According to the Prescott Gazette, the gentlemen's cabin, which is on the main deck, is 45 feet in length, and is elegantly fitted up with state-rooms; the ladies' cabin is underneath, and fitted up in an equally tasteful manner. There is also a commodious promenade deck, and every accommodation for passengers.
