Novel Craft for Lake Navigation. - Near the Marine railway, at the ship-yard, may be seen a new craft for lake navigation in progress. It is the hull of a large canal boat, covered with a projecting steam boat deck, in the sides of which wheels are to be inserted. - This strange looking craft is designed as a horse boat, to run between this city and Sodus Bay.

It is intended to bring wood for the steamers, and the propelling power will be that of six horses. Should this craft happen to get caught in one of the gales which sometimes stir up the bosom of old Ontario, we wouldn't like to ensure a great premium on horse flesh.
