NEW STEAMBOATS.--A fine steamboat of the first class, has been commenced at Perrysburgh, Ohio, and is to be ready for the lake in the spring. It will be commanded by Capt. A. Pratt, late of the steamboat Oliver Newberry.

Three steamboats are building at Erie, all of which are to be completed in readiness for the opening of navigation, and one of which, of 700 tons burden, will be launched within a few days.

There will be, it is said, about sixty steamboats plying on Lake Erie next season.


A large steamboat is building at Point Levi, on Lake Ontario.
