THE MAGNET.

Capt. Sutherland's new iron steamer The Magnet, arrived here this morning from Hamilton and intermediate Ports, and our readers will perceive by an advertisement in another column that she leaves again this afternoon at 4 o'clock, on her regular trip.

We have already published one or two good descriptive articles of the Magnet from our Toronto contemporaries, and we will simply add here, from personal inspection, that her capacious and neatly fitted cabins, her strength and speed are all that could be desired by the Traveller. The Magnet's accommodations for deck passengers are also very superior.
