Rapid sailing--The Detroit Packet, capt. Keith left the Saut de St. Marie on the evening of the 30th ult., and arrived at this place in less than fifty hours.


The Steam Brig Superior, Capt. Sherman arrived here last Wednesday, with between three and four hundred passengers, among whom were Major Larned, of the U.S. army, Dr. Chapin and Palmer, and Messrs. Wadhams, Browning, Hinchman and Reed of this city. Dr. Webb, of the Friends' Settlement, and a great number of strangers, whose names we have not learnt. The Superior was also deeply laden with goods for the merchants of this place and household furniture.

The schrs. Huntington, Lake Serpent, and Neptune, which have arrived since, were crowded with emigrants. Our most sanguine expectations in relation to the settlement of this fine country, are more than realised.
