From the Niagara Patriot--June 2.
Steam-Boat Launch

On Thursday last according to previous arrangements, was launched the elegant Steam-Boat at Black Rock, built by Mr. Brown of New-York, who is one of the proprietors. She left the stocks a few minuits [sic] before one, and moved in a fine style without accident into her desined [sic] element, amidst she acclamations of the numerous spectators, who were highly gratified with the novelty of the scene. This Boat is intended to ply between Black Rock and the city of Detroit, touching at some of the intermediate ports on the American side of the Lake, and is expected to go into operation early in July. The regularity and expedition of this mode of conveyance will be a great acquisition to men of business, and we cordially wish the enterprising proprietors an extensive [sic] patronage, amply sufficient to remunerate them for their laudable and expensive undertaking.
