THE RIVER QUEEN. -- We learn that Messrs. Talbot & Richardson, of North Buffalo, have recently purchased the steamer "RIVER QUEEN," which boat, it will be remembered, was built to run between Black Rock, Falconwood and Sheenwater; but from some defect in her hull, she did not succeed. The purchasers propose to build a new hull for the machinery of this boat and place her on the above mentioned route the coming season. Mr. Talbot has been interested for several years past in steam navigation on the Niagara River, and thoroughly understands what is needed for the route, and we are assured that no pains or expense will be spared to make this boat safe, comfortable and convenient. We are glad to know that this enterprise has been taken hold of by men of experience and capital, and the public may rest assured that under their management these pleasant and so much needed resorts, which the public so much demands, will be easily accessible the coming season by way of the Niagara Street Railroad and the RIVER QUEEN.
