[The Steamboat passes Cincinnati]

On Sunday last [i.e. Oct. 27], the Steam Boat lately built at Pittsburgh passed this place on her way to N. Orleans. —The citizens of this place were much disappointed in not having an opportunity of viewing her, only as she passed—she made no stop here.  From the rapidity with which she passed this place it is supposed she went at the rate of 12 or 14 miles an hour.
