Trip to Green Bay.--The steam boat Henry Clay, Captain Norton, departed from this port on Sunday last, for Green Bay. She had a very considerable number of passengers in the cabin, and a detachment of 250 U.S. troops for the posts on the upper lakes. Majors Gwynne, Larned and Kirby, of the U.S. Army, and Messrs. Abbott, Biddle and Gray, of this city, were among the passengers.
Steamboat on the Strait.--A small steam boat is now building, (or, as some folk will have it, "being built,") in this city, for the purpose of plying in the straits of Detroit and St. Clair, carrying passengers between this city and Fort Gratiot, Monroe, Amherstburg, &c.
