SUPERIOR, Nov. 30.--Capt. Alex. McDougall has gone to the Pacific Coast.

CHICAGO, Nov. 30.--The crews of the White & Friant, Fanny Neil, and Annie Sherwood arrived Friday from Washburn, Lake Superior. The boats are all frozen in at that place. They report having had a severe time the past two weeks. The White & Friant was 13 hours going from Standard Rock to Manitowoc Island, a distance of 25 miles. It has snowed continually in that section for the past six days, and navigation is about closed.

DETROIT, Nov. 30.--The submarine boat was launched from the yard of the Detroit boat works yesterday afternoon. She had been constructed inside a large shed, which sheltered the carpenters while at work, and from this she was launched on ways into the water. Everything went off smoothly, but a portion of the blocks caught under her port side, canting her in that direction and preventing visitors from seeing her in an upright position. Ten tons of ballast are already in place and when about 20 tons more are put in, a week hence, she will be given a trial. Experts are a little backward in expressing an opinion on the strange craft, but they say they would not be surprised if she proved a success.

MANISTEE, Nov. 30.-- The new steambarge Edward Buckley, built at Manitowoc for Capt. Gnewuch and others of this city, came into port to-day to be finished and painted. She cost $40,000, and will run in the lumber trade from the Buckley & Douglass Mill.
