NEW STEAMBOAT. - The Fredonia Censor says that a neat little steamboat was launched from the ship yard of Messrs. Vail, at Silver Creek, Chautauque Co. on the 2d inst. She bears the odd name of The STORE PAY of Silver Creek. She is to ply between Silver Creek and this port.

      The Fredonia Democrat says, that the name of the Steamboat launched at Silver Creek on the 2d instant, is The HERO OF NEW ORLEANS, and not The STORE PAY of Silver Creek, as stated in the Censor. We think the former name the best of the two, though not half long enough; THE MAN WHO HAS FILLED THE MEASURE OF HIS COUNTRY'S GLORY, for instance, would have done better, for a title. We suspect, however, that, short as it is, the present cognomen will be practically clipped down to THE HERO. It will then be significant enough [fold in paper] Gen. Jackson ! 'Twere utter superfluity to add more.
