The Steam Brig Superior, Capt. Sherman, left here yesterday for the last time this season and fired a salute when opposite to the town. She has had an excellent business the present season, & will doubtless continue to receive a good proportion, of the increasing business of Lake Erie.


The steam-boat Chippewa now touches at La Plaisance, the harbour of the River Raisin. This will be a great facility to the settlement of the country on that river, during the season of emigration.


The Fisheries.--On Grosse Isle and the adjacent Islands, there are about twenty seines actively engaged, and doing well. Along the strait, on the main, there are about the same number, and three or four on Hog and Fish Islands. It is supposed that the whole amount that will be taken the present season, on this strait alone, will exceed 3000 barrels. The present price is from five to six dollars per barrel.
