Buffalo, August 2.
      NEW VESSELS---During the past week, two fine schooners have arrived at this port, on their first trips. The COMMERCE, of 88 tons burthen, built at Sandusky, and owned by Messrs. Gillet and Pratt & Meech, of this village, and W. Townsend, of Sandusky; and the BOLIVAR of 60 tons, built at Erie, and owned by Capt. G. Miles, of Erie, and Messrs. Thompson & Co., of Black Rock. Both these vessels are well built, have good cabins, elegantly fitted up for passengers, and do credit to the tasts and enterprise of their spirited owners. They furnish also another proof of the continually increasing commerce of the west, and the rapid interchange of property that is constantly going on, between New York and a remote interior, bordering upon the lakes.
