-The Corinthian - This fine steamer made her trial trip on Thursday evening, and answered all expectation. She was under the able management of Capt. P.G. Chrysler, so well and favorably known on the lake and river route as the captain of the New Era and Empress, of the Royal Mail Line. It has been stated before in these columns, that the Corinthian is intended to run on the route between Coburg and Rochester, and that she is an iron boat of the first class. The Corinthian was designed and modelled by Mr. G.N. Ault, of Portsmouth, and is in every way a credit to him. The draft of hull was sent from here to Scotland, where the hull was made, and then sent to Kingston to be fitted. The saloon is beautifully ornamented with stained glass made in Montreal, and also the panelling which is neat and artistic. The engine and boilers were made by Mr. Tutton, of the Ontario Locomotive Works, and is in every way a piece of workmanship of which he may be proud. After running to Garden Island for a life boat and taking a few turns round the harbor, she was headed for Nine Mile Point, from which place she ran to her wharf in twenty-five minutes, a distance of six and a half miles, having ran a mile in about four minutes with an average of thirty pounds of steam. The Corinthian is expected to leave this port on Saturday for Toronto, at which place she will take on board some portion of her cabin furniture, and commence her trips on Monday or Tuesday.
