      Ogdensburg, May 21. -- The steel steamship CAMPANA arrived at Prescott today on her way to Montreal. The boat is in two sections, having been cut in two in order to be towed down the St. Lawrence canals.
      The history of the steamer is somewhat odd. She was for many years engaged in the South African trade from London. Then she was purchased by Canadians, brought to Montreal, cut in two and towed up the canals to Lake Ontario. For two season she ran in the passenger trade between Kingston and Chicago. This proving unsuccessful she was taken out of service, but was sold this spring, to be used in the West Indies and Gulf trade. Again the steamer was cut in two in order to get to salt water. She is being towed down the St. Lawrence this afternoon.
      At first it was proposed to run the rapids, but the boat was not adapted to that perilous navigation.
The CAMPANA was the first twin screw passenger boat in lake service and was a handsome craft.
