The Steam Packet Canada. - This long established and favourite Packet was hauled up on the rail-way at the Dry Dock at Niagara on Monday last, the 16th instant, for the purpose of undergoing a complete repair. On examination she was found to require much less repair than expected, nearly the whole of her timbers being as good as when the boat was first launched. Every thing that is necessary to render her as sound and as good as new however, will be done before she is launched again in the Spring to resume her wonted trips across the Lake. - This is the first vessel that has been hauled up to the new Dry Dock, and it was effected with ease and facility. The Dock Company gave a dinner to Capt. Richardson on the occasion, at Farrington's Hotel, at which a number of the Gentlemen of Niagara were invited. - Great numbers of respectable persons were assembled to witness this first experiment of hauling up a vessel from the New Dry Dock. - York Courier.
