The Traveller. - This fine vessel touched at our Harbour on Tuesday last, on her first trip from Niagara to Prescott. Yesterday morning she paid us another visit on her route upwards, heavily laden with goods and passengers.

This vessel, as mentioned by us on a former occassion, is schooner rigged, having her machinery under deck, after the fashion of the British Channel Steamers, with two beautiful Engines of 40 horse power each, made by Ward of Montreal. Her shafts and cranks are made of wrought Iron, and of Glasgow Manufacture.

We have not the exact dimensions of the "Traveller", but understand that the length of her deck is 145 feet. Her State Rooms are extremely commodious and comfortable - and in point of speed she stands foremost on the western waters.
