The steamer HIGHLANDER. -- This splendid boat is at present in the St. Lawrence Canal, at the east end of this town, where she had taken up her winter quarters at the closing of the navigation. The contemplated alterations in her dimensions are rapidly progressing -- the carpenters being at work for nearly the last month. The stern is rounded off, so as to admit her to pass with ease through the locks of the Beauharnois Canal, and a tier of State-Rooms have been commenced with considerably, upon her promenade deck. Her shape and appearance will thus be altered, and her accommodations rendered superb. Her speed and power is already acknowledged to be superior to that of any other boat that "walks the water" between Montreal and Toronto. Captain Stearns -- her commander, is a "Trump" -- the crew able and steady, and the HIGHLANDER herself, a general favorite. It is expected, weather permitting -- that she will commence her trips between Kingston and Lachine, early next month. We wish her every success. ----- Cornwall Observer.
