Cleveland, Sept. 30.
ANOTHER NEW STEAM BOAT.--- We are happy in having it in our power to state that the stock of another steam boat has been taken, principally by citizens of this place; and the work put under contract. The Steam Boat " CLEVELAND " is designed exclusively for the conveyance of passengers between this place and Buffalo. She will measure 180 feet deck; 28 feet breadth, and 11 feet hold; and will be propelled by one of Kinball's low pressure engines of 10 inch cylinder with 10 feet stroke. The boilers will be placed under the guards, which will afford room for a cabin nearly the whole length of the boat. The number of berths will be some two hundred. Tonnage 550. She is fitted up in a superior manner for the comfort and accommodation of passengers; and will run between this city and Buffalo by daylight. Capt. Church is the contractor; and his experience, ability and taste as a workman are a sure guaranty that this steam boat will be what she is designed to be, an ornament to the lake, reflecting credit alike upon the builder and the place whose name she bears. She is to be ready for business by the first of July next. - Cleveland Herald

The new Steamboat CLEVELAND was towed from Huron to this place on Saturday, by the S.B. NEW YORK. The CLEVELAND will be finished as soon as possible, and in season for the early autumn travel. Her model is said by competant judges to be the most beautiful ever seen upon this lake. Our citizens will have reason to be proud of our city's namesake.
