THE COMMODORE PERRY. - The new revenue cutter built by Capt. Whittaker at Buffalo, for service on the lake, had a trial race of speed on Monday up the St. Clair, in company with two regular side-wheel steamers, the PEARL and REINDEER. They started from Detroit and ran Thirty-three miles up the St. Clair, against the current. The cutter made the distance in one hour and forty minutes, her steam at one time getting very low. She left her competitors far behind. This is a favorable indication of the capability of her peculiar means of propulsion
