I had just a few minutes on board to-day atd did not got all the particulars, but I can see that the breakwater at tho stem bad been cairied away, and that they had to erect another, and by all appearances they have made a very goed job of it. Cantam Stewart says that she behaved very well, indeed, at sea, and she looks to be in excellent order, plainly showing that tho hands have not been idle on the voyage. We aro to get her up tho river tomorrow morning and make a start to put her buckets on.”
