LAKE ONTARIO. - The new Steam-Boat UNITED STATES, running between Lewiston and Ogdensburgh, and touching at Rochester, Oswego and Sackets Harbor, is represented as one of the most splendid and commodious upon the lake. She has two low-pressure engines of 80 horse power each, with boilers upon deck. The ladies cabin is composed entirely of state rooms, and the gentleman's forward and after cabins of both state rooms and berths. She has an 150 feet deck, and 140 promenade; warm and cold baths, and all that is necessary for the health, ease and entertainment of the traveller. She is commanded by Capt. Trowbridge, whom we hear spoken of in terms of high commendation.

The present would appear to be the season of Steam-Boat accidents. We are informed that the American Boat, Wm. AVERY, whilst at French Creek, on Thursday, broke her Engine in several places. The Engines in this vessel and the BLACK HAWK are formed on a new plan, which, as yet, have not been very successful. They were made, together with that of the United States, by Mr. William Avery, of Syracus. --- Kingston Spectator
