One of the steam-boats now building at this place, and intended for Lake service, will be launched from the Dock-yard, at the foot of Commercial Street, on Saturday next, at 12 o'clock. This is the smaller boat of the two now building here, and is the one which was originally intended to navigate the River between this place and the Niagara Falls; but owing to the great increase of travel, and the rapid tide of emigration now setting in to the west, the Steam-boat Company, we are informed, have come to the resolution to appropriate this boat to lake navigation. The large boat, destined for the same service, is likewise nearly ready for launching, but we have not understood that the day has yet been fixed on. - Black Rock Gazette

LAUNCH.---The new steam-boat "PIONEER", was launched at Black Rock, on Saturday last. She is destined to ply between Black Rock and Detroit, and is to be fitted for the lake as soon as possible. Another, and much larger boat, the "HENRY CLAY", is still on the stocks at the same place, and will be launched in a few days. - Buffalo Journal
