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."

      We are obliged to defer a notice of the new and beautiful steam-boats PENNSYLVANIA and ADELIADE, which sailed from our harbour on Sunday last, on their first trip up the lake.

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.

      LAKE ERIE STEAM BOATS.
      We have frequent inquiries, from distant places, concerning the Steam Boats of these waters.
The following is an extract of a letter to us, received yesterday, and dated. BOSTON, Mass., Dec. 8, 1834
"Of your city, and the region west of it, we know, in fact, but little; and form, for the most part, but very erroneous conclusions, in relation to either. We hear, often, of Lake Erie Steam boats, but know nothing of the number, and hardly more of their general character. If not too much trouble, may I ask that you will favour me with the names of the several Steam Boats upon Erie, and the more western lakes? Any facts relating to the business character of Buffalo, &c. would also be acceptable, should leisure permit. "
In compliance with the request of our correspondent, we have obtained from a gentleman who is an extensive owner the names of all our Steam Boats, and those of the British, which we subjoin.
We given them in this form, rather than in a private letter, that it may meet the eye of others, who are making similar inquiries.

      ADELAIDE.
      Of the character of our Boats for strength, speed and elegance, we may challenge any water to a comparison. Many of them are of the largest class, and all well found.
Of facts relating to the business character of our city, we can at this moment do no more than refer our correspondent to our advertising columns; but will write him in a few days, in detail upon the subject.
