NEW STEAM-BOAT.--- Arrangements are going on successfully for building at Huron this fall or winter, to be ready for the opening of navigation next spring, a new steam-boat of 150 tons burthen. A part of the stock is already taken, and the wood materials are on the ground. The former engine of the ENTERPRISE is to receive thorough repairs and some alterations for the above boat.

      LAUNCH. - The Steam Boat built at Huron, (Lake Erie,) the past season, was launched on the 22nd. ult.

She is expected to take the lake in four or five weeks.
