"Steamer."--This detestable English cockneyism for "Steam Boat," we have before had occasion to condemn. It is a John Bull substitute for the name the lamented Fulton gave to his own invention. English arrogance has denied, in books, that our countryman was the inventor of the Steam Boat, and the English news-press suppresses his name for the invention, to help on the fraud. Is it not pitiful, then, that this name should be so readily adopted in this country? We meet it, occasionally, in many papers, but in none so uniformly as in that most respectable one, the New York Commercial Advertiser. We wish its editor would make a more patriotick use of the influence of his example.
