Steam Boats.--Two steam boats are building at Black Rock, one of which is to ply between this place and that, and the other between Black Rock and Niagara Falls.--Another is also on the stocks at Cleveland, intended for the navigation of Lake Erie.--Among the "sings [sic] on the times," the increase of the number of steam-boats on our waters, is one of the most prominent, indications of the growing importance and prosperity of this section of the country, and from all accounts, we are inclined to the belief that the emigration to Michigan will, the next season, keep them all in constant employment.
