A fine Schooner of about 50 tons is now building on Chautauque Lake, by some gentlemen of New-York. We learn that she is intended to ply between Mayville and Jamestown in the regular forwarding and transportation business. Sailing parties can be accommodated, when this vessel is finished, in quite a novel, though agreeable, manner, and at an elevation of more than 700 feet above the level of Lake Erie.

Robert Hamilton, Esq. of Queenston, U.C. is engaged in enlarging and improving the Steam Boat Queenston, for the better accommodation of the public. Mr. John Hamilton, proprietor of the Frontenac, is preparing to build a Boat to take the place of the Frontenac, which is considered "too old to run another season after this."

A Steam-Boat is to run the present season between York and Niagara, touching at the Head of the Lake. The Steam-Boat Martha Ogden is also reported to run between York and Youngstown.
