Iron Steamer - An Iron Steamer for the use of the Royal Navy, on Lake Ontario, has lately arrived out from Home. It came, of course, in pieces, but the Government having sent out competent persons, it is to be put up forthwith. In the same vessel which brought out the Iron Steamer, arrived the Magnificent Engines of the Steam Frigate CHEREOKEE, now almost ready for launching. We have received intelligence on which we can rely, to the effect, that the Lords of the Admiralty have determined to put the Naval Establishment at Point Frederick on a substantial and permanent footing.
