The BAY STATE.--The new steamer BAY STATE, built at French Creek for the Ontario and St. Lawrence Steamboat Company is now receiving her machinery, engine, &c., and is rapidly progressing to completion. She is a splendid model of 1,000 tons burthen, and will be a little ahead of anything else built on this lake. -------- Oswego Times

      The "BAY STATE"- This is the name of another new steamer, which the Ontario and St. Lawrence Steamboat Company have brought out, and now lying in this port to be finished for the coming season. Her dimensions, we believe are about equal to those of the CATARACT, and she looks as though, when done she would be the gayest craft for running on these waters. She was launched at French Creek. We understand the company have another steamer on the stocks at Oswego, of the larges class, to be out some time next season. This compnay, by their well directed enterprise, are taking their place among the most substantial and successful ones in the country. Their boats are attaining a just celebrity, while their commanders are universally respected as skillful and gentlemanly officers. ---- Ogdensburg Rep.

NEW STEAMER.---The Odgensburgh Sentinel says that the BAY STATE, a splendid new boat, to be commanded by Captain Van Cleve, is now nearly ready to take her place in the line. Her burthen is 1,000 tons. She has 60 state rooms on the upper deck, and is in all respects a first class boat.

      A MODEL STEAMER. - The new steamer BAY STATE, on Lake Ontario, is a model boat, and her Captain, Van Cleve, is a model commander. Nothing can surpass the elegance and comfort of a trip on the BAY STATE. Her cabins are splendidly furnished, her state rooms are spacious, the beds excellent, the table sumptuously covered, being creditable alike to the steward and cook, while to crown all, the quite politeness of the officers leaves nothing undone for the gratification of passengers. Capt. Van Cleve is every inch a gentleman. Mr. Cooper, the Clerk, is also "a model." Citizens who desire to travel down Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence, will find the BAY STATE a delightful conveyance. - Rochester American.
