Full Text

      The CHAMPION having been placed on the route from St. Joseph to Chicago, Capt. Ward, came down on Tuesday, with the HURON. She has been thoroughly repaired , and will run regularly the remainder of the season, between this city and Port Huron. She will leave this morning on her first regular trip. We rejoice that our citizens will no longer be compelled to submit to the imposition of the RED JACKET.

      Steamer CHAMPION.--The steamer, having been repaired, left this morning for St. Joseph, and should she meet no further incident, we shall have an Eastern Mail tomorrow. The crank which gave way was found to be porous and otherwise defective. The incident is to be regretted, for the CHAMPION is an unusually fine steamer for her size. Chicago Express.
