Steam Boat Wm. F. PORTER TAYLOR, Capt. Chas. Myrick. - This is the name of a new boat built at Silver Creek, and owned by Oliver Lee of that place, and Pratt, Taylor & Co. of Buffalo. The TAYLOR is 145 tons burthen, propelled by a high pressure engine of 45 horse power, with three boilers from the foundry of Messrs. Culver & Dickinson of this village; it is a piece of workmanship that would do credit to the more extensive establishments of our eastern and western cities. The TAYLOR is a neat model, firnished in the most modern style. She is intended for a regular boat between Dunkirk, Silver Creek and Buffalo. She sails to-morrow for Buffalo, where she is to be furnished, and will commence her regular trips in a few days. - Dunkirk Beacon.
