STEAMER HENDRIK HUDSON. - This steamer, which is admitted on all hands to be one of the most magnificent vessels that ever sailed on the great inland seas, having been thoroughly and beautifully renovated and repaired, leaves port tomorrow for Chicago. Her reputation as a fast sailer and a commodious and comfortable steamer, is too well established to need any special commendation from us. She is commanded by Capt. J. Imson, an officer who is at once capable and gentlemanly, and one who will leave nothing undone which is essential towards rendering a steamer pleasant and attractive. In his hands the HUDSON cannot fail to prosper. Her first mate is Mr. S. Bond, an efficient and competent officer. Mr. J. Cummings, the Clerk, is a gentlemanly and accommodating man, and peculiarly well qualified for his station. The Steward, Mr. G.W. Corbet, is one in whom that essential department can be trusted with entire confidence. We wish the HUDSON that success the present season that she is so justly entitled to.
