Thomas Jefferson.--This is the name of another floating castle, or Steam-Boat, which came into port last week. She is just from the stocks, at Erie, Pa. and is principally owned by Col. Chas. M. Reed, of Erie, and Smith & Macy of this city. She lies at Main st. wharf, where her work is being completed. She is to be driven by one of Allaire's square engines, with nine feet stroke; and will be out on the opening of navigation., Her very great length, and substantial build, give the Thomas Jefferson, a very imposing appearance.


The iron hand of winter is upon us this morning. Snow is falling, and the ground freezing so that, without a very sudden change, the canal must soon close. The lake is still unmolested, and steam-boats and schooners are yet plying thereon.


Sandusky.--This new Steam-boat, which we recently noticed, has been completed, and left port a few days since, for Sandusky, to winter. By passengers who left in her, and have since returned, we learn that she is likely to fulfil the most sanguine expectations of her owners, both for speed and as a sea craft.


Vessel Lost.--We learn that the Schooner Prince Eugene, containing a valuable cargo of merchandise, and bound for the mouth of St. Joseph River, was lost during a violent gale, about two weeks ago, about one hundred miles below the mouth of the River. The vessel is a complete wreck, and a great part of the cargo lost. The crew were saved.--Detroit Journal.
