THE MAY QUEEN. - The new and elegant steamer, built by John Owen, Esq., for the Cleveland route, was out on Saturday, to test her engine and steering apparatus. She is a beautiful model , and will do credit to her builders. In consequence of her rudder giving way, her run was short, and she returned to her dock, to complete painting, &c. It is expected that she will take her place in the line the fore part of next week. - Detroit Tribune
