      The WISCONSIN.--We learn from the Milwaukie Courier, that the citizens of Milwaukie, on the 4th instant, presented to Capt, Randall a complete suit of colors, for the use of the steamboat WISCONSIN. The ceremony of presentation took place on the upper deck, and one thousand persons are said to have been present. Byron Killbourn, Esq. on behalf of the citizens, presented the colors in an appropriate speech, in which he mentioned that Fitch, who made the first successful experiment in steam navigation on the Delaware river in 1798 was his own grandfather. Capt. Randall returned thanks in happy terms on behalf of himself and the proprieters of the boat.
