On Saturday last, the new steam boat Superior, was launched at Buffalo Creek, amidst the cheers and acclamations of a numerous concourse of spectators, assembled from this and the adjacent towns, and a salute of 13 guns was fired from her after she had safely descended to her destined element. She is a fine built vessel, constructed of the best materials, and is to be fitted for the lake with all possible expedition.

The Lake appears entirely clear of ice, and our commerce will soon resume its wanted activity and interest. [ Buffalo Journal]

We are informed that the Steam Boats on the River, are at present (with the exception of the Telegraph and Montreal) all the property of one company: of which Messrs. John Molson & Sons are Agents both at this place and Quebec. The Malsham and Car of Commerce are to be laid up for this season. [Courant]
