We are informed by the Messrs. dounson, uiat tuo ijilli9-li0U was pronounced by the river men of Mo bile, the best built and staunchest freight boat that ever landed at their wharves, and that her success was conceded by all. Her average speed, up stream, heavily freighted, was from seven to eight miles an hour, with the ability to "run like a scared wolf," if necessary; while she is so easy and reliable on the wheel that a child could pilot her, if he knew the channel. Many of our Columbus friends were at the wharf when she came in and all united in praising her and wishing her "God-speed" in the mis sion of opening up the upper Bigbeo to Steam navigation.

Miss Ludie Puine, in tho solo to that noble composition "Hear ns Father," delighted the audiance, and was admirably supported in the chorus by the Church Choir.
