The Steam-Boat Superior, capt. Rogers, arrived here from Buffalo on Friday last, and sailed for Michillimackinac on Saturday, having on board a considerable number of passengers, and a full cargo of merchandise destined for the Indian trade.

The trip-sheet of the Superior contained the names of 99 passengers, more than half of whom were for this territory, and have since left this place to examine the U.S. lands in the interior.

The trip to Saut de. St. Marie will be made as soon as the Superior returns from her next trip to Buffalo.

White Fish.--Last fall a gentleman in this city sent a barrel of White Fish to a friend in new York, from whom he has recently received a letter, in which the highest commendation is given to the fish--those who had an opportunity of tasting them were of the opinion that in flavor they far exceeded shad. We have not the least doubt but this opinion of our white fish will become more general as the exportation of them increases.
