New Steamer. - Messrs. Hersee & Timmerman, furniture dealers, Main street, completed a contract yesterday for making and furnishing the entire furniture for the new iron steamboat at Montreal, Canada, to be completed and ready for sailing on the first of May next. The steamer is built by John Hamilton, Esq., of Kingston, who is the oldest and most extensive owner of steamboats on the waters of the lower Lake. Mr. Hamilton built, if we mistake not, the steamer Great Britain, among the first, if not the first regular steamboat on Lake Ontario. That the contract has been given to Buffalo mechanics and manufacturers is a compliment to the city, and will be suitably appreciated by Messrs. Hersee & Timmerman, and by their numerous friends; and we venture to say Mr. Hamilton will, in the consummation of the contract, be entirely satisfied that they have done his boat full justice.
