Steam-Boats.--Since our last the Steam-boats Superior, Niagara, Henry Clay, and Enterprise, have arrived; and yesterday the three last named were lying in our harbour. We are again cheered by the appearance of many respectable emigrants to our Territory, and by information, that Michigan will receive a considerable accession to her population during the ensuing season.

The Superior, we are glad to find, will still furnish the superior accommodation, which has hitherto been her boast; and the Niagara's small yet neat and comfortable cabins, appear not to have lost any of their attraction.

The number of passengers brought to this place by the Superior was between 20 and 30, by the Niagara 29, by the Henry Clay, 23, and by the Enterprise 20.
