Chicago. - This is the name of a new and beautiful steamer just finished by our enterprising fellow citizens Messrs. Bronson & Crocker and Mr. S. Doolittle, being one of the vessels designed to form a tri-monthly line from this place to Chicago. She is one of the largest class, and is allowed by all who have examined her, to be the most elegant specimen of architecture of her kind ever seen at this port.

She leaves this evening, with a heavy and profitable freight, and some eighty passengers, in high spirits, under the command of our gentlemanly and amiable fellow citizen, Capt. William S. Malcolm. With such a captain, and such a vessel, if the passengers don't have a fine time of it, there can be no such thing in the world. We know Capt. M. well, and we know he will be all kindness and attention - he is generous to a fault - and if we hear of any complaints, we shall make up our mind that he has a cynical set for companions; but we have no fears. Long may he and his proud craft flourish prosperously together.
