      NEW STEAMBOATS. -- The GREAT WESTERN, a vessel of upwards of 700 tons burden, was launched at Huron, Ohio, on the 4th inst. And is now finishing in the place. She is intended for the Upper Lake trade, and will be commanded by Capt. Walker. All luck to her, but we are sorry her owners had not the good sense in giving her some other name.
