It affords us much pleasure to copy from the Detroit Free Press of the 11th instant, the following testimonial of the gallantry and humanity displayed by our esteemed friend, Samuel Hosk Derriman, Esq., R. N., of Her Majesty's steamer KINGSTON:-- "The subscribers , passengers on board the steam-boat STAR from Cleveland to Toledo and Detroit, unite in returning thanks to S. H. Derriman, R. N., of Her Majesty's steamer KINGSTON, for the promptness with which he hastened to their aid, with a boat's crew and anchor, as soon as he was informed that the steam-boat on which they were passengers was aground near Malden; they acknowledge themselves indebted to his judicious and well-directed exertions, for their rescue from the perilous situation in which they had continued more than twenty-four hours, without any other prospect of relief than that which was rendered by the officer and his crew to whom they now express their hearty gratitude." --- "Malden, U. C., 9th. December, 1839"
