First trip of the Steam Boat Superior

Last sunday, at 12 o'clock, the Steam Boat Superior made her appearance, for the first time this season, in a majestic river. There was not a zephyr in motion, and the river, like a vast mirror, reflected every object upon its pleasant banks, which were clothed in their richest verdure. The air was soft and warm, and everything conspired to create, in the minds of her two hundred passengers, impressions the most favorable to our territory.

We can assure the public, that although the Superior has changed her masters, she still retains her accommodations. all that neatness and regularity for which she was celebrated when in charge of capt. Rogers, is maintained, in its fullest extent, by capt. Bunker.

The steam boat landed thirty families at our wharves, and since her departure for Buffalo last Monday, three other vessels have arrived, containing emigrants--nearly all are from the state of New York.
