The Henry Clay.--This fine boat arrived here yesterday morning from Buffalo, with 16 cabin passengers and 15 in the steerage. She left Buffalo on Thursday morning last. We are informed that the Superior left Buffalo for this place a few days before--but was obliged to put back after reaching Erie, having lost one of her anchors. The following gentlemen arrived in the H. Clay. Messrs. H. Kipp, John Palmer, M. Chapin, Maj. Larned, H.V. Disbrow, C. Taylor, M'Grew, Houghland, Kies, Wadkins, Watson, Dodge, Harper, Allen --Ladies: Mrs. Owens, and Miss Harper.

On looking over the Henry Clay, we find that her careful captain is determined that his boat shall maintain the good name which she has earned, by her excellent accommodations and cleanliness.
