ARRIVAL -- The old steamboat ANTHONY WAYNE arrived in tow, yesterday, from Monroe, minus her engine, pipes, and all her internal apparatus - a mere skeleton. Her engines have been transferred to the BALTIMORE, built this season at Mornoe; and Charles Howard, Esq., of this city, has purchased the hull to convert into a sail craft. - Detroit Adv.

      The ANTHONY WAYNE. --- The hull of the ANTHONY WAYNE was purchased last season by Charles Howard Esq., and has been re-fitted up in good style with new boilers and the machinery of the steamer COLUMBUS. She has good cabin arrangements for passengers, and is well adapted to carry freight. We understand she will run between here and Buffalo. She made a trial trip up Lake St. Clair and proved herself worthy of public favor. ----------- Detroit Adv.

The Steamer ANTHONY WAYNE.---This steamer made a trial of her engine yesterday, by a trip up lake St. Clair, and found herself a fast boat,---running from the light-house to Detroit, a distance of 7 miles, in 30 minutes. She was rebuilt the past year from the remains of the GENERAL WAYNE. Her hull is nearly all new and strongly built. Her boilers are new, as well as everything appertaining to the furnace, pipes, &c. The WAYNE's engine are from the steamer COLUMBUS, improved by the father of Engineers, James Menzes. Beside the well furnished cabins, the steerage is fitted up with mattresses for steerage passengers. This is a great improvement, which it would be well for other boats to follow. The WAYNE is to be commanded by Captain J.T. Pheatt, late the popular captain of the INDIANA, and a better man cannot be found. J. Watson is the engineer, and an excellent one he is. --------- Detroit Free press
