p.2 A correspondent of the York Courier notices a trial trip of the new steamer Adelaide, intended for the navigation of Lake Erie. She ascended the Welland River for nine miles, on which occasion a large party of ladies and gentlemen of Chippewa and the neighborhood were on board, and the evening was spent, after her return to the wharf, in dancing till an early hour. The new boat (the first British boat on Lake Erie,) is 120 feet in length, 40 feet in breadth from guard to guard, and draws about 5 1/2 feet water. The engine, which is that formerly belonging to the Alciope, works to seventy or eighty horse power.
