p.2 New Steamer - On a visit to Portsmouth a few days ago, we entered Ault's ship-yard, and had the pleasure of seeing in frame the new steamer building for Capt. Perry. This steamer is to be of the largest class of lake and river boats, and adapted to freight as well as passengers. She is therefore strongly framed, of the best material, while her fne lines give promise of a high rate of speed. The work on the new steamer is being rapidly pushed forward, and she will probably be ready for service in August.

The Banshee, the beautiful river mail steamer, launched by Mr. Ault in the fall, will be finished by the opening of navigation, and take her place in the line.
