Her First Trip. -- The steamer CITY OF CLEVELAND arrived here yesterday morning from Detroit, having made the trip from dock to dock in six hours and forty minutes. Although this is fast time, yet the vessel was not going at its best. The NORTHWEST did not arrive yesterday morning as usual, but went into the dry dock to stop a slight leakage, which was made on her first trip this season by contact with the ice. As the CITY OF CLEVELAND leaves here tonight for Lake Superior, it was thought best to let her carry the NORTHWEST's passengers and freight on this trip. The CITY OF CLEVELAND is without doubt one of the best steamers afloat. Her cabins, staterooms, dining rooms, etc., are all improvements on former constructions of this kind. She is commanded by Captain Albert Stewart, who was in the CITY OF DULUTH last year, and formerly in the KEWEENAW. Her mate is Alexander McKay; clerk, E. H. Patterson; steward, C. G. Horton; engineer, Robert Stage; and second engineer, John Jones. Her genial steward, Mr. Horton, was formerly in the GOLDEN GATE, CRESCENT CITY, IRONSIDES and other steamers. All but the Captain are last years officers.
