NEW BOAT ON LAKE ERIE. -- The last York, U. C. Courier says: "The new British boat building at Chippewa for Lake Erie, will be ready by the 1st June. She is 200 tons burthen -- is to be worked by the engine lately used in the ALCIOPE, the power of which has been increased to 70 horse; which will make the new boat the fastest on Lake Erie. She will ply between Chippewa and Sandwich, touching at all the intermediate British ports, and calling at Buffalo to take in emigrants, &c., for the western parts of Canada."

The ADELAIDE is a new and beautiful little boat running on the Canada side from Chippewa to Sandwich. The two are a valuable addition to our lake, and they will probably be followed by others in the spring.
