UNITED STATES REVENUE CUTTER HAMILTON. - The trial trip of the U. S. Revenue Cutter HAMILTON, built by David Bell, Esq. of this city, which took place yesterday, was very satisfactory to all concerned. The cutter ran from the light-house at the mouth of Buffalo Creek to Dunkirk, in two hours and forty-five minutes against a heavy sea, at the rate of over thirteen miles an hour. The steamer will be commanded by Captain Chase, who will arrive in this city soon, and will in all probability be assigned to the Gulf, near New Orleans.

The two U. S. Revenue cutters GALLATIN and HAMILTON, constructed of iron, were built at this yard under contract given to Mr. Davis Bell, Esq.
Mr Bell has also constructed of iron several smaller boats, one of which, the "IVANHOE," done good service under captain Paul Pelkey on Portage Lake last summer.
