NEW STEAMBOAT.--One hundred and twenty thousand dollars, it is stated by the Chicago American, were subscribed at that place, in a single day, for building a steamboat to be called the Illinois of Chicago. It is to be built after the model of the steamboat William Gibbon of New York, and be completed by the opening of navigation next spring.


ANOTHER STEAMBOAT.--A steamboat of 400 tons burden, called the De Wit Clinton, was to be launched at Huron, Ohio, on Saturday last. She is to take her place in the line, under command of Capt. H.H. Squier, of Buffalo, early in the Fall.
