STEAM BOAT NIAGARA. -- On Thursday last, was launched, from the old ship yard, the elegant Steam Boat NIAGARA. She passed into the waters of our harbor, in a graceful style, and without accident. The NIAGARA is now at the wharf, at the foot of Commercial Street, finishing with rapidity, and receiving her machinery. Of her appearance on lake Erie, due and suitable notice will be given.

      The new steam boat NIAGARA, is now just completed, and lies at the wharf at the foot of Commercial Street. She is finely modelled for sailing; her ship-wright smith, joiner, cabinet and carved work, was done by Black Rock mechanics, and she is said to be the handsomest boat that has ever been fitted for the lake. She will be commanded by Captain William T. Pease, who is already advantageously known to the public.
