Inland Navigation--Last Friday evening our citizens were gratified with a most novel arrival. The sloop St. Clair (50 tons burthen) passed thro' the lower lock into the basin laden with peltry and ashes, from Mackinac, bound to New York! At Buffalo, the St. Clair unshipped her masts, and has been towed through the Erie canal, and will proceed on her voyage in tow of a steam boat. This fact speaks volumes of the spirit and profitable enterprize of 'the great and patriotic state of New York.' What empire can boast as proud a triumph?--ib [Albany Gazette]
