A NEW CANAL BOAT. -The Rochester Union notices the departure from that city on Saturday, for Buffalo, of a new canal boat for Captain A. McCoy. The craft is of the largest size that can pass the locks, is about 22 tons burthen, and is made with a view to strength, having extra timbers and clamps. The boat is a Laker, and has as fine a cabin as we ever saw on a canal craft. The cost of the boat with furniture was about $4,000, and there is perhaps no better or more comely boat afloat. This fine craft, which does credit to both builders and owner, is called JOSEPH W. PEABODY, in owner of the gentleman by that name in the firm of Niles, Brewster & Peabody, forwarders at Buffalo.
