The SUPERIOR, Capt. W. Sherman, is now undergoing repairs, and will receive new boilers, and be ready about the middle of June. This is a large, staunch and strong boat, and low pressure.

      The Steam Boat SUPERIOR, Capt. Pease, took her place in the Line and started on her first trip of the season, on Monday morning last. She had a large number of passengers on board and was deeply laden with freight. The SUPERIOR, a few years ago, was the only boat on the Upper Lakes; she has been laid up for the last year or two, but now takes the lake again in fine condition. She has two new boilers on deck, constructed at the foundry of Messrs. Beals, Mayhew & Co., in this village, on the newest and most improved plan. ---- Buffalo Journal.
