The Western Transportation Co.'s stm. SUSQUEAHANNA, from Buffalo via Cleveland the 27th ult., arrived here yesterday afternoon. The steamer is on a trial trip for the purpose of testing the Perry & Lay engine. Today an excursion was made to enable different parties interested in steam machinery to witness the working of this new style of engine, which has so far developed a great economy in fuel. The SUSQUEHANNA has made the run from Buffalo in her usual time, with a saving of over 43 % in fuel. With the former engine the consumption of fuel was 62/100 of a cord per hour. - Chi. Tribune.
