NEW STEAMBOAT. - The Sandusky Mirror says that a new steamboat building at Plaster Bed by Messrs. Lockwood & Smith, was to have been launched on Saturday last. This steamer is about 150 tons burthen, modeled by Capt. Bates, the same gentleman who modeled the BAY CITY, MAY QUEEN, ARROW, and various other fast boats. She has been constructed under the superintendence of Mr. John Squier, one of the best mechanics in his line, and whose experience and well known abilities will prove a sufficient guarantee that his department in the building of the steamer will be all that could be required. The new boat is intended to run between Cleveland and Sandusky, and will be a great convenience to the citizens at both ends of the route, as well as to the citizens of Huron and other intermediate ports.
