THE FLOATING PALACES. - It has been decided that the "floating palaces," the magnificent WESTERN METROPOLIS and CITY OF BUFFALO, shall no longer be the delight of passengers up the lakes in the summer months. Capt. Goldsmith went up to Monroe, Mich., yesterday and will return with the METROPOLIS. She is to be straightway dismantled, her furniture sold here at auction, and her hull cut down and converted into a barque for the lumber trade. The CITY OF BUFFALO will be treated in the same manner shortly.

      THE CITY OF BUFFALO. - The beautiful steamer CITY OF BUFFALO arrived in port yesterday, and the work of removing her engines and furniture will be commenced immediately. The furniture will be sold at auction, and the engines probably sent to New York for use on an ocean steamer.
