New Steam-Boats.--We understand that a steam boat is to be built at Black Rock, to ply on the Niagara river, between that place and Schlosser, which is intended to touch at Chippeway [Chippawa] on the Canada side. The boat will commence running with the opening of the navigation next spring.

We learn from the Niagara Gleaner that a steam-boat is about to be built at that place, intending to ply between the ports of Niagara and York, of a hundred tons burthen, of 25 horse power, and which will probably be in operation in the ensuing spring.
