Navigation of Fox and Wisconsin Rivers.--John P. Arndt, Esq. an enterprising citizen of Green Bay, is building a small steam-boat for the purpose of running on Fox River.--Should he succeed in surmounting the difficulties of that stream, there will soon be another steamer on the Wisconsin, where there are few rapids or to her obstructions. A canal might be easily made at For Winnebago, through the portage between the two Rivers,and then there could be a continuous steam navigation from Buffalo to New-Orleans.
