The largest steam-boat in America, and the most splendid, has lately been launched at New York. She is called the President, and according to the New York Spectator, runs at the rate of eighteen miles an hour! She is commanded by Captain Bunker, formerly of Lake Erie.
Navigation of the Lakes.--The last month has been the most tempestuous of any within our recollection. The Napoleon, Capt. Blake, and the Detroit, Capt. Lee, suffered severely in lakes Huron and Michigan, the latter having lost one man overboard--and all her sails, except the jib blown to pieces. The United States, Capt. Whitaker, had a tempestuous passage through Lake Erie, and came into port a few days ago with most of her sails blown to rags.
