We have omitted to notice the arrival at our port a third of this new class of vessels. The SAMSON, a new and beautiful boat, arrived from Perrysburg last Saturday: she is of 250 tons burden, and has a Gentlemen's cabin, some 10 airy state rooms, with 3 berths in each, and a first and second class cabin for emigrants, - freight room for 2,200 bbls. bulk, and is fitted and furnished in the best manner. The paintings and decorations of her Gentlemen's cabin, are equal to any of our best steamboats, and reflect much credit upon the artist, Mr. J. Smith of this city. The engine is from the manufactory of Dennis, Wood & Russell, Auburn. The boat was built at Perrysburg during the past winter by Samuel Hubbell; she is owned by Messrs. Hollister and A. Pratt, is commanded by Capt. Pratt, late of the WAYNE, and is destined for the Chicago trade.
