"New Buffalo."--This is another of the numberless prominent points for business, upon our yet unocupied [sic], western Steam-Boat coast of some two thousand miles--a point which but yesterday was without a name, and to-day, through that untiring enterprise and industry for which our nation is so conspicuous, has its warehouse and other appendages for the receipt and delivery of property, now first demanded by recent settlements in the vicinity. See advertisement of W. Whittaker & Co.

We hail, with pleasure, all such new evidences of western prosperity; for they not only show that wants and comforts are daily created and supplied there, but each such demonstration is an additional landmark, pointing out the onward destiny of our thriving city.


Steam-boat sunk.--The Steam-Boat General Porter, which was last winter laid up in Black Rock Basin, was discovered, on Monday last, to have sunk in some ten feet water. She will be raised, as speedily as possible--when, perhaps, the cause of the submersion may be discovered.

P.S. We learn with much pleasure, this morning, from one of the owners, that the Porter was raised yesterday, and is now afloat, wholly uninjured. The leak was caused by the action of the frost upon the standing pipe. Her furniture was not on board.
