      On Tuesday last, the first vessel, a propeller, ever built in Belleville, was launched at that place in the presence of a large number of spectators. She is named the MOIRA, and was built by Mr. Hoselton, and is the property of Mr. Flint. She is propelled by a high pressure engine of 135 horse power, and is intended for the Belleville and Oswego route.

      A steamer built at Belleville last season for Bella Flint, Esq., called the MOIRA, has commenced to ply between that enterprising town and Oswego. The boat is a fine one and reflects much credit on the citizens of Belleville. She is 123 feet on deck, fitted up with upper cabins and state rooms for the accommodation of passengers. The new route seems to succeed well, as the boat is always loaded with freight and passengers.
