Steamer Vandalia. - It gives us pleasure to bear the good doings of this beautiful craft. She it is whom our jealous neighbors of Buffalo yelped the "Oswego humbug," because she is moved by the Ericsson propellers. Well, she left here for Chicago, and arrived safe and sound at Cleveland in 38 hours running time against head wind. Next we hear of her is farther off, where she was kindly towing two schooners, which had not the advantage of the propellers. Pretty good for a humbug; and she seems to sit so well, that she will be followed, in the course of a few weeks, by two more of the same class and character.
