ANOTHER.--- The steamboat BUFFALO was to have been launched from the ship yard of Mr. Carrick on Buffalo Creek, on Wednesday last. The Journal thus notices the new boat: "The BUFFALO measures 194 feet on the upper deck, 28 feet 6 inches beam, and 12 feet 6 inch hold. Her burthen is about 670 tons. It is designed to put into this vessel a very powerful low pressure engine, and she is to be fitted up in a manner that will make her a superior passenger and freight boat. She is the largest vessel now belonging to our port."
