STEAMER CONSTELLATION. - In common with many other boats which lay in port during the past winter, and which are fitting out for service, this favorite steamer has undergone many important improvements. Her hull has been much strengthened by additional new timbers, her engines and machinery thoroughly overhauled and simplified so as to attain increased speed, and a splendid and spacious new upper cabin has been built extending nearly the entire length of the deck, giving an additional number of fine state rooms with surplus space remaining for such ante-rooms as are necessary in and conduce to the accommodation of passengers. In short, the CONSTELLATION, may now be classed among the crack boats in commission. Capt. J. M. Lundy, formerly of the CHAUTAUQUE, takes command of and will run the CONSTELLATION in conjunction with the ROCHESTER, Capt. Folger, now fitting up in a similar manner, with the other boats forming the Merchant's Transportation Company. Holt, Palmer & Co., agents.
