IRON STEAMER. -- An iron steamer for the use of the Royal Navy, on Lake Ontario, has lately arrived out from Home. It came, of course, in pieces, but the Government having sent out competent persons, it is to be put up forthwith. In the same vessel which brought out the Iron Steamer, arrived the magnificent engine of the Steam Frigate CHEROKEE, now almost ready for launching. We have received intelligence on which we can rely, to the effect, that the Lord of the Admiralty have determined to put the Naval Establishment at Point Frederick on substantial and permanent footing. -- British Whig.

THE LAUNCH. -- A large schooner, of an admirable model, from the dock yard, in this village, on last Thursday afternoon. It had the whole of its rigging up, and slid off the stocks, sideways, into its destined element in the finest style. The vessel was only eight weeks building. We are informed by Mr. S. That he has an order for the immediate construction of two others. -- St. Catharines Journal.

Going Ahead By The Rapids.--The steamer CHARLOTTE, Capt. Marshall, which left Kingston on Monday, arrived at Montreal on Tuesday after a run of 25¼ hours. She belongs to Messrs. McPherson & Crane. --- British Whig.
